[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Bug#738855: initscripts: Skip killing process starting with @
xnox at debian.org
Thu Feb 13 13:58:23 UTC 2014
There is convention starting that processes whos name starts with '@'
shouldn't be killed. It is used to indicate that process is needed to
manage root device / cleanly unmount the root filesystem.
At least mdadm supports it for it's 'mdmon' process which is daemon
needed to manage containers (aka fakeraid controllers - Intel Matrix
Raid and DDF).
I've implemented a patch using pgrep, thus it's optional code in
sendsigs if pgrep is not available.
