287 Fix by Bryan Kadzban <bryan@kadzban.is-a-geek.net>
288 * Changed initreq.h to be more flexible and forwards-compatible.
289 * You can now through /dev/initctl set environment variables in
290 init that will be inherited by its children. For now, only
291 variables prefixed with INIT_ can be set and the maximum is
292 16 variables. There's also a length limit due to the size
293 of struct init_request, so it should be safe from abuse.
294 * Option -P and -H to shutdown set INIT_HALT=POWERDOWN and
295 INIT_HALT=HALT as environment variables as described above
296 * Add "mountpoint" utility.

391 * 2.78 will be the new upstream version, I'm skipping 2.77
392 * Shutdown now calls sync before switching the runlevel to 0 or 6,
393 or before unmounting filesystems if -n was used (closes: #46461)
394 * Some cosmetic changes to init.c (closes: #32079)

415 * Add comment in rcS about usage of setup.sh and unconfigured.sh
416 * Shutdown now removes nologin file just before calling telinit
417 * SEGV handler now tries to continue after sleep of 30 seconds.
418 On a 386-class processor it also prints out the value of EIP.

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

465 * Fixes bugs:

467 #21765: sysvinit: Typo in `killall5.c'
468 #21775: sysvinit: sysvinit does not support MD5 hashed passwords

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

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

740- Lots of changes all over the place.
741 (like showing runlevel in "ps" listing, logging
742 runlevel into utmp file etc)
743- now using "reliable" signals instead of V7 style.
744- Updated all scripts. Examples are in two directories:
745 etc (normal) and etc-sysv (sysv style scripts).

759 now "ctrlaltdel" instead of "power{wait,fail}".
760

762- Fixed last to reckognize BSD style wtmp logging.
763- Changed init to write wtmp records that are
764 SysV compliant but are also reckognized by the
765 BSD last. Added a '+' option to the 'process'
766 field of inittab, for getties that want to do
767 their own utmp/wtmp housekeeping (kludge!).
768- Now accepts a runlevel on the command line,
769 and reckognizes the 'auto' argument. (Sets the
770 environment variable AUTOBOOT to YES)
771
7722.2.3 24-Mar-93
773- Ripped out the 'leave' action. To difficult, and
774 unneeded.

777- This version is stable enough to post.
778

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

793 is a shell script. (shouldn't execvp do this?)
794- Added patches to use syslog if defined.
795
7962.0 08-Dec-92
797- Rewrote the code totally, so started with a new
798 version number.

801 run standalone for test purposes.
802

805 to be default under linux. Fixed some typos.

814 'process' get exec'ed by /bin/sh -c 'exec command'.
815- Rapidly respawning processes are caught in the act.
816- _SYSV support is really Linux support,
817 done by poe@daimi.aau.dk on 25-Mar-92.
818
