As reported on previous bug report, rolling-back or switching generation
doesn't activate the system as a system reconfiguration would do.  This is
especially problematic when modifying in /run/setuid-programs, as it can't be
reverted easily.  Also it hinder modification in the activation script since
it's not straight forward to revert change made by those script without a
functional roll-back mechanism.

I'm not sure it's the right approach but at least it work: it add the
activate.scm script to the system profile and then load it when

This is related to issues:
- #37596 and #38884 (they are duplicate)
- #36855 a more wider discussion
