Doc Type: Rebase: Bug Fixes and Enhancements
Doc Text:
_dbus_ rebased to version 1.10 The _dbus_ packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.10, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. Notable changes include: * *dbus-run-session* is a new utility to run a *dbus* session bus for the runtime of a login session, making *ssh* sessions which start dbus-using applications more predictable and reliable. See `man 1 dbus-run-session` for more details. * Several memory and file descriptor leaks have been fixed. This improves the *dbus-daemon* memory usage and reliability. * The well-known system and session bus configuration files have been moved from `/etc/dbus-1/` to the `/usr/share/dbus-1/` directory. While the old location can still be used, it is deprecated (specifically, `session.conf` and `system.conf` are deprecated, but system administrator configuration snippets under `session.d` and `system.d` are permitted).

Description of problem:
Current stable version of dbus is 1.10, rhel7 contains 1.6 which is quite old and might be a good idea to rebase to newer version. It will resolve couple of issues and also contains lots of misc leak fixes and generaly improvements

The rebase may indirectly contribute to system-wide regression wrt.
