setproctitle() on Linux

Reported by: des Owned by: des
Priority: normal Milestone: Varnish 2.0 code complete
Component: varnishd Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords:


Linux (or rather, glibc) doesn't have setproctitle(); instead, we have a dummy in libcompat. We need a working implementation.

We may also want to use our own implementation on *BSD, to get a consistent result across platforms (FreeBSD's setproctitle() is a bit strict in how it ofrmats titles)

It is not clear to me how useful or necessary setproctitle() is.

The main benefit I see is that we have the ability to distinguish the master and slave processes so people know which one to kill with a venegance.
