            Bug ID: 181825
           Summary: [GTK] USE_UPOWER causes crashes inside a chroot or on
                    systems with broken dbus/upower
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Local Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk

I'm trying to run the GTK layout tests inside a chroot  and I get a lot of test crashing.

Hunting this down it seem it happens only when USE_UPOWER is set.

The problem seems to be that on the constructor of LowPowerModeNotifier at Source/WebCore/platform/glib/LowPowerModeNotifierGLib.cpp the call to up_client_get_display_device() is returning NULL ( which is ok according to the doc https://upower.freedesktop.org/docs/UPower-up-client.html#up-client-get-display-device ) so we end calling g_signal_connect_swapped with NULL and everything blows up.

Also up_client_new() can as well return NULL according to the doc.

Actually in my test case both are returning NULL, so both m_device and m_upClient are nullptr.

I think we need to check at run-time this, and bail out properly in case something is wrong.

Having UPOWER support at build time doesn't means that it will be functional at run-time.
