On a specific installation there will be one dbus installation say 1.2.9
which includes the fix, but the fix is disabled by default. Also there
is one Qt (with Dbus) installation which checks first if
dbus_set_api_poliycy is available (QtDbus checks presence of every dbus
api function) and if so activate the non thread safety fix.
All processes using this QDbus installation will be protected by the
Other bindings or low-level apps, which may requires patching, have to
call dbus_set_api_policy() to activate this fix.
