// The minimum amount of work necessary to get ctrl-c and such to work is:
//
// - Fork a child (PID 1 is special: can't exit, has various signals blocked).
// - Do a setsid() (so we have our own session).
// - In the child, attach stdio to /dev/tty0 (/dev/console is special)
// - Exec the rest of the command line.
//
// PID 1 then reaps zombies until the child process it spawned exits, at which
// point it calls sync() and reboot().  I could stick a kill -1 in there.
