Updated elogind integration patch

Hello everybody,

unfortunately I found a place in polkit I overlooked when patching in elogind support.

The result is rather harsh, polkit does *not* ask elogind for the calling users session and seat. The consequence is, that loginctl asks for the root password for every simply thing. Literally everything, because polkit can't match against <active> in the elogind policy set, but has to resort to <any>.

Please find attached an updated polkit-0.113-elogind.patch that fixes the issue.
