Sadly no...  The call to udevPCITranslateInit (e.g. pci_system_init)
never returns while processing some PCI device. It's not very
reproducible, but it seems to be some interaction with systemd usage of
an lspci, but it's hard to prove and debug as it only happens running
"some" avocado test "at the right time". I could run 8 times with no
failure, but on the 9th it fails. Other times it happens on the 2nd run.
Never on the first one (figures, eh!?).

As for the upstream issue - my thought there is very simplistic and
hopeful that it'd pass muster.... Just modify the build or install
dependencies to check for a minimum systemd version and be done with it!
 Although to be honest I haven't put that much thought to it ;-).
They're taking upstream libvirt and expecting that it'd work with some
older systemd - I dunno if I'd expect that.  The question becomes what
version of libvirt does the Centos6 distribution provide... If then you
as a consumer decide to build/run further version upstream code - you
should also be expected to update whatever requirement that code has.
