Possibly glibc_post_upgrade needs some hacks for systemd.

It wants to telinit u (to avoid unclean shutdown) and
condrestart sshd (if both exists and it isn't inside of a chroot
and the corresponding init is running and be able to handle telinit u
and service sshd condrestart has also chance of working.

If this changed somehow with systemd, it needs to be tweaked.
