Only the global-init process must be special - any other container-init
process must be killable to prevent run-away processes in the system.

TODO: 	Ideally we should allow killing the container-init only from parent
	container and prevent it being killed from within the container.
	But that is a more complex change and will be addressed by a follow-on
	patch. For now allow the container-init to be terminated by any process
	with sufficient privileges.
