292 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
293 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
294 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size

393 * 2.78 will be the new upstream version, I'm skipping 2.77
394 * Shutdown now calls sync before switching the runlevel to 0 or 6,
395 or before unmounting filesystems if -n was used (closes: #46461)
396 * Some cosmetic changes to init.c (closes: #32079)

417 * Add comment in rcS about usage of setup.sh and unconfigured.sh
418 * Shutdown now removes nologin file just before calling telinit
419 * SEGV handler now tries to continue after sleep of 30 seconds.
420 On a 386-class processor it also prints out the value of EIP.
421 * Fix for racecondition in check_init_fifo() by Richard Gooch

439 * Change sulogin password buffer to 128 characters.
440 * Don't print control characters in dowall.c
441 * Try to open getenv ("CONSOLE"), /dev/console and /dev/tty0 in order.
442 For backwards compatibility when you try to boot a 2.0.x kernel
443 with a linux > 2.1.70 /dev/console device.
444 * Change src/Makefile for non-debian systems (mainly, RedHat)
445 * Try to create /dev/initctl if not present; check every time to see
446 if the dev/ino of /dev/initctl has changed and re-open it. This should
447 help devfs a bit.
448 * Send SIGUSR1 to init at bootup to let it re-open /dev/initctl;
449 again in support of devfs.
450 * Moved pidof to /bin (it's only a link to killall5 anyway)

467 * Fixes bugs:
468 #21616: sysvinit: sulogin thinks md5 root password is bad
469 #21765: sysvinit: Typo in `killall5.c'
470 #21775: sysvinit: sysvinit does not support MD5 hashed passwords

490 * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
491 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
492 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
493 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
494 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
495 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
496 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
497 24 Feb 1998, AV:
498 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
499 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
500 re_exec fails.

512 * Use siginterrupt, now that system calls are restarted by default.
513 Main symptom was that the sulogin timeout didn't work but there
514 might have been more hidden problems.
515 * Kill process immidiately if turned off in inittab
516 * Fixed sulogin check on tty arg.
517 * Use strerror() instead of sys_errlist
518 * wall now supports a '-n' option to suppress [most of] the banner.
519 Debian doesn't use sysvinit's wall, but apparently Redhat does.
520 * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
521 * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)

595 * Changed default PATH to include /usr/local/sbin
596 * Set /dev/console as controlling terminal for sysinit,bootwait,wait,powerwait
597 This allows using ^C to interrupt some parts of eg the boot process.

742- Lots of changes all over the place.
743 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
744 runlevel into utmp file etc)
745- now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
746- Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
747 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
748- runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
749- added support for serial console.

761 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
762
7632.4a 22-Apr-93
764- Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
765- Changed init to write wtmp records that are
766 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
767 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
768 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
769 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
770- Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
771 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
772 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
773
7742.2.3 24-Mar-93
775- Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
776 unneeded.

779- This version is stable enough to post.
780

782- Made wait()'s asynchronous
783- Changed whole thing to one big state machine
784- Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
785- Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
786 process will be executed when the system goes from a
787 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
788 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
789

795 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
796- Added patches to use syslog if defined.
797
7982.0 08-Dec-92
799- Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
800 version number.

802- With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
803 run standalone for test purposes.
804
8051.3, 05-Jul-92

807 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
808

811 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
812

814- Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
815 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
816 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
817- Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
818- _SYSV support is really Linux support,
819 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
820
821 1.0, 01-Feb-92
