  (It's always like that. No matter how many checks you perform before
hitting the release button, you always discover the worst bugs right

  s6- is out.

  It adds a -X command to s6-svc, that is like -x except it makes s6-supervise
instantly close its stdin/stdout/stderr before priming for exit.
  This is used in the latest version of s6-linux-init.


  s6-linux-init- is out.

  Oh boy. The race condition that all the crafty fifo shenanigans were
supposed to avoid was still there, sneakily hidden in the ugliness of
the aforementioned shenanigans. Well, now it's fixed. Also, the
possible hang in stage 3 has been fixed too, and the catch-all logger
should exit cleanly as soon as nothing is writing to it anymore, but
not too early.
  I'm reasonably confident that this version works. :)


  Bug-reports welcome.
