281 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
282 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
283 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
284 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
285 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
286 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
287 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
288 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and

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

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

459 * Fixes bugs:

461 #21765: sysvinit: Typo in `killall5.c'
462 #21775: sysvinit: sysvinit does not support MD5 hashed passwords

482 * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
483 * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
484 the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
485 * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
486 'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
487 (passing its state through exec, certainly).
488 May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
489 24 Feb 1998, AV:
490 did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
491 Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
492 re_exec fails.

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

530 * Fix race condition with SIGCHLD in spawn()
531 (thanks to Alon Ziv <alonz@CS.Technion.AC.IL>)

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

729* remote shutdown
730

732- Ignores unknown command line arguments.
733- Modelled more after the "real" sysVinit
734- Lots of changes all over the place.
735 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
736 runlevel into utmp file etc)
737- now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
738- Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
739 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).
740- runlevel 0 = halt, 1 = single user, 6 = reboot.
741- added support for serial console.
742- updated Propaganda, manpages.
743- added shutdown access control.

748
7492.4g 15-May-93

751 hooked up an UPS to the Linux machine. The
752 keyword for catching the TreeFingerSalute is
753 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
754
7552.4a 22-Apr-93
756- Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
757- Changed init to write wtmp records that are
758 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
759 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
760 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
761 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
762- Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
763 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
764 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
765
7662.2.3 24-Mar-93
767- Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
768 unneeded.
769- Going single user now kills _all_ processes.
770- Added '-t secs' option to all commands.
771- This version is stable enough to post.
772
7732.2 02-Mar-93
774- Made wait()'s asynchronous
775- Changed whole thing to one big state machine
776- Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
777- Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
778 process will be executed when the system goes from a
779 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
780 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.
781
7822.1 28-Jan-93
783- Fixed a bug with 'boot' and 'once'.
784- Check 'initdefault' for validity.
785- Reckognizes "single" as command line argument.
786- Retries execvp with 'sh -c exec ..' if command
787 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
788- Added patches to use syslog if defined.
789
7902.0 08-Dec-92
791- Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
792 version number.
793- Dropped Minix support, this code now is Linux - specific.
794- With TEST switch on, this init & telinit can
795 run standalone for test purposes.
796
7971.3, 05-Jul-92
798- Got a 386, so installed Linux. Added 'soft' reboot
799 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.
800
8011.2, 16-Jun-92
802- Bugreport from Michael Haardt ; removed deadlock
803 and added 'waitpid' instead of 'wait' for SYSV.
804
8051.1, 30-Apr-92
806- Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
807 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
808 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
809- Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
810- _SYSV support is really Linux support,
811 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
812
813 1.0, 01-Feb-92
814- Initial version, very primitive for the Minix
815 operating system. Required some mods. to the
816 kernel.
