During testing of concurrent booting with dependency based sequencing,
I discovered a leftover startpar process stuck with read() on
/dev/ptmx. ps -ef report the process was 'startpar -f -- rsyslog'.
The startpar process had three file descriptors open, 0 -> /dev/ptmx,
1 -> /dev/console and 2 -> /dev/console. gdb backtrace of the
startpar process do not show any symbols.
To reprodyce the process, do
'echo CONCURRENCY=makefile >> /etc/default/rcS' and reboot with
The rsyslog version is 4.2.0-1. With the dependency based sequencing,
rsyslog was started alone and first in the rc2.d/ directory.
