Subject2.4 -> 2.5 breakage (rpciod?)
Date
This is a testcase made from a shutdown script.
Note double ps invocation at the bottom in zz.

Testcase kills all processes nicely on a 2.4 in preparation to umount+reboot.
However on 2.5.7 it shows erratic behavior: killall5 -15 seems to disturb
rpciod for a moment, this shows as "/bin/ps: I/O error" at the first ps after
kill commands. However, after user presses <Enter> second ps executes just
fine.

Without this pause (a few seconds while user hits <Enter>) it is impossible
to continue (e.g. do a reboot): even sleep N won't work ("/bin/sleep: I/O
error"). You can see this while beeper tries to make 1 second pauses.

Additional notes:
* I use simpleinit from util-linux, hence kill -TSTP 1
or else simpleinit will try to spawn new gettys.
* I run an NFS-mounted box. Have to kill dhcpcd first or else
eth0 gets deconfigured with catastrophic results.
* I suspect this bug manifests itself over NFS only.
