Subject: [PATCH] systemd: ensure that accounts service starts after NSS

The various NSS calls don't give accurate results in some configurations
until midway through boot up.  This is because SSSD or winbind (or
whatever) needs to initialize.

In order to prevent accounts service from using NSS prematurely, we need
to add an ordering constraint between the and

This commit accomplishes this by adding the appropriate Wants= and
After= directives to the accountsservice systemd unit file.

 Description=Accounts Service
+# In order to avoid races with identity-providing services like SSSD or
+# winbind, we need to ensure that Accounts Service starts after
+# ypbind.service
 # We pull this in by instead of waiting for the bus
 # activation, to speed things up a little: gdm uses this anyway so it is nice
 # if it is already around when gdm wants to use it and doesn't have to wait for
 # it.
