Subject: Testing to see if services have crashed on hardened

Hi List.

I've just removed the code to check for euid when running services and instead 
relying on permissions of the service state dir and testing errno. This is a 
good thing, but it does have one side effect.

OpenRC can track daemons by how they were started. So every time you run 
rc-status it tests each reported service to ensure all daemons are up.  This 
also works fine unprivileged on normal boxes - except for hardened where 
users can only see their own processes.

This isn't really an easy answer, as we could have installed OpenRC in a 
prefix where this wouldn't apply, but we don't know that either.

Ideas anyone?

Thanks

Roy
