No particular reason, when I talked with Justin about implementing this it
frankly didn't occur to me that the option could be used outside tests (where
we want to simulate offline lookups w/o interference from the system). I
totally forgot about this thread.
Do you also think this option would be useful in general? (I'm wary of adding
more options, imo we already have too many..)
My customer currently builds minimal custom Debian packages disabling netlink
support because it does not make sense in a data center.
But in general using OS-provided packages would be preferred. And not having to
muck with starts scripts provided by this packages would be appreciated too.
=> IMHO such an option in sssd.conf for disabling netlink support completely
would be useful.
