Subject: [PATCH] pid1: don't return any error in manager_dispatch_notify_fd()
 (#4240)

If manager_dispatch_notify_fd() fails and returns an error then the handling of
service notifications will be disabled entirely leading to a compromised system.

For example pid1 won't be able to receive the WATCHDOG messages anymore and
will kill all services supposed to send such messages.
