Has undefined reference to IN_SET.
I am guessing I don't need this part of the patch, right?
- if (errno == EAGAIN || errno == EINTR)
+ if (!IN_SET(errno, EAGAIN, EINTR))

Just some comments on this patch.
It looks like this patch does three things
* It removes "assert(n > 0)".
* It removes the now unused n parameter from the
* It removes the return(0) if n==0. This looks like the only relevant part.
For the first two changes, it looks like the
manager_invoke_notify_message() function and hence the assert was only
introduced in systemd in the following commit, before tag v209. This was
not in the wheezy version, so I don't think these parts are required.

core: allow PIDs to be watched by two units at the same time
In some cases it is interesting to map a PID to two units at the same
time. For example, when a user logs in via a getty, which is reexeced to
/sbin/login that binary will be explicitly referenced as main pid of the
getty service, as well as implicitly referenced as part of the session
