In containers without CAP_SYS_ADMIN, it is not possible to mount tmpfs
(or any filesystem for that matter) on top of /run/user/$UID.
Previously, logind just failed in such a situation.

Now, logind will resort to chown+chmod of the directory instead. This
allows logind still to work in those environments, although without the
guarantees it provides (i.e. users not being able to DOS /run or other
users' /run/user/$UID space) when CAP_SYS_ADMIN is available.
