      Suspend/Hibernate through daemon instead of greeter · a0476890
      Martin Flöser authored
      Summary:
      This change addresses multiple problems with the implementation of
      PowerManagement's suspend/hibernate in the greeter.
      
      First of all it removes the usage of KDELibs4Support library by
      dropping the usage of the PowerManagement API.
      
      The previous variant performed blocking DBus calls which we don't want
      in the greeter. The new implementation is designed in an async way, so
      that it cannot block. The new implementation is also LGPL licensed to
      make it easy to use it as a base for a new implementation in frameworks.
      The new implementation also comes with a small test application to
      demonstrate the usage.
      
      Last but not least the power management query is moved from the greeter
      into the daemon. This brings multiple advantages. It brings us closer to
      no DBus in the greeter and means we don't need to query DBus every time
      the screen gets locked. Instead the value is cached in the deamon and
      pushed to the greeter on start (through the custom Wayland prtocol).
