I noticed that polkitd uses 100% cpu, i use gentoo (testing) have recently switched to a hardened profile, I tried it with a kernel not hardened (4.7.2) and I have no problems

  • There are several security features enabled in the "hardened" Gento linux kernel. Compare what you posted to the un-harden linux kernel you are now using. Polkitd might be negotiating permissions to get through some of the enabled security features of this "hardened" kernel.
