Yeah, cool. I do like making the process lifetime more sensible here. It
always threw me that do_exit*() just stopped execution. :)

For future me, can you add a comment on start_group_exit() that mentions
where final process death happens?

"0" feels weird here, but I can't think of any better "fail closed"
error code here.

This could use a similar comment to the syscall's comment, just so I
don't panic when I read this code in like 3 years. ;)

Otherwise, yeah, looks good.
