  You don't, if you want it supervised. If you want to launch s6-svscan
under systemd, you should write a proper unit file for it, so systemd
can manage it as one of its services.

  If you're fine with it not being supervised and insist on launching
s6-svscanboot from /etc/rc.local, then you want to enclose all its
commands in a "background { }" block, which is execline's equivalent
of the shell's &.
