I run my s6 stuff in slashpackage configuration so I missed the
s6-fdholder-filler issue. The slashpackage puts full paths in for all
generated run scripts so I'm a little surprised it isn't doing that
for standard FHS layouts.

All the uid/gid stuff I've verified as failing in the same ways. I'd
also expect the gid directories to either: not be symlinks but their
own directories or have a single "access" directory that both the uid
and gid entries are links to. I also don't know s6-fdholder's rules
well enough, but does it treat uid 0 special or if you specify a
non-root uid do you also need to specify root?

Lastly, I appear to have never run `s6-rc-db pipeline longrun'. From
the source it's failing in the if (buffer_flush(buffer_1)) call. I may
be wrong, but I think removing the if test and just forcing out the
flush is what you want.
