267 * Fixed up bootlogd to read /proc/cmdline. Also keep an internal
268 linebuffer to process \r, \t and ^H. It is becoming useable.
269 * Applied trivial OWL patches
270 * Block signals in syslog(), since syslog() is not re-entrant
271 (James Olin Oden <joden@malachi.lee.k12.nc.us>, redhat bug #97534)
272 * Minor adjustements so that sysvinit compiles on the Hurd
273 * killall5 now skips kernel threads
274 * Inittab entries with both 'S' and other runlevels were broken.
275 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
276 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
277 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
278 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
279 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
280 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
281 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
282 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
283 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
284 * Add "mountpoint" utility.
285 * Slightly better algorithm in killall5.c:pidof()
286 * Added some patches from fedora-core (halt-usage, last -t,
287 sulogin-message, user-console)

402 * Change dowall.c to handle Unix98 ptys correctly
403 * Add comment in rcS about usage of setup.sh and unconfigured.sh
404 * Shutdown now removes nologin file just before calling telinit
405 * SEGV handler now tries to continue after sleep of 30 seconds.
406 On a 386-class processor it also prints out the value of EIP.

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

456 #21775: sysvinit: sysvinit does not support MD5 hashed passwords

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

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

729 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
730 runlevel into utmp file etc)
731- now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
732- Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
733 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).

747 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
748

750- Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
751- Changed init to write wtmp records that are
752 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
753 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
754 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
755 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
756- Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
757 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
758 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
759
7602.2.3 24-Mar-93

769- Changed whole thing to one big state machine
770- Now using 'pseudo levels' # & * for SYSINIT & BOOT
771- Added a new type of 'action', called leave. This
772 process will be executed when the system goes from a
773 runlevel specified in it's runlevel field to a
774 level that's not. Nice to bring down NFS and the like.

781 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
782- Added patches to use syslog if defined.
783

789 run standalone for test purposes.
790

793 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.

800- Read manual wrong: there is no 'action' field called
801 process, but all entries are of type process. Every
802 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
803- Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
804- _SYSV support is really Linux support,
805 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
806
