Thanks ;)

Just in case... instead of WIFSIGNALED/WTERMSIG we can also report
the exit code in the upper bits. I mean,

	switch (reboot_cmd) {
	case LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_RESTART:
		code = 1 << 16;
		break;
	case LINUX_REBOOT_CMD_HALT:
		code = 2 << 16;
		break;
	}

this can't be confused with the normal exit(code), just the parent
should be careful, I am not sure this can't confuse WIFEXITED/WEXITSTATUS
user-space macroses.

wait(&status) takes "int *", we have a room for additional info, and
wait_task_zombie() simply copies exit_code.

Oleg.
