    With a recent sysvinit (2.74), you can just do this in a startup script:

    mknod -m 600 /dev/initctl p
    kill -USR1 1

    From the manpage:

    On receipt of this signals, init closes and re-opens
    it's control fifo, /dev/initctl. Useful for
    bootscripts when /dev is remounted.

    It checks if it is really init with (getpid() == 1). Also, it wait()s for
    all processes that die; the process with pid #1 _has_ to do that.
