Cloud images and ubuntu package testing now use systemd

Hello all,

this morning I discovered that our daily cloud images got switched to
booting with systemd last night. I adjusted the daily autopkgtest CI
image build process to cope with that, and it looks good again. That
means that all package tests in Ubuntu CI, i. e. on
are running under systemd now.

This apparently caused some regressions in e. g. and maybe a few
others, so if you look at why your package started failing its tests,
this is a very likely reason.

For those who wonder, we still plan to switch vivid to systemd by
default, but the FFE [1] is still pending. I'll send a
warning/instructions announcement before that happens.
