Sorry, I must've been writing faster than thinking.

Some libvirt users ([1][2]) have reported this error with installed but
inactive systemd, where system dbus is running and the machine1 service shows
up in ListActivatableNames output, but it's not actually usable.

Perhaps https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=493246
would be a better bug for the commit message, but it seems to track multiple
issues and it only mentions the error in the comments.
