Please explain why DBus needs volatiles.bbclass to support a readonly
rootfs.  Presumably it's because the machine UUID is written to
/var/lib, are there any other reasons?

I added this patch because I encountered an error when starting the sato 
image.
That is, the machine UUID needs to be written to /var/lib.

I'm not familiar with dbus. Is it not necessary?

Thanks,

The file is necessary and needs to be persistent for at least the
lifetime of a boot, so generating it on dbus startup and writing to a
tmpfs is fine.

My point was that the commit doesn't say *why* it does what it does.
