on a 'normal' server, init and telinit are often the
same binary, and the 'init' process knows that it is
init by verifying that it's pid equals 1 ...
when init is started, it opens a pipe, which reads
the commands given by telinit and halt, poweroff, etc.
possible causes for this message therefor are:
- init/telinit is called but not as pid == 1
- reboot, halt, poweroff are called without -f
- init is started as 'faked' pid 1 but this
doesn't work as expected yet ...
- add some userspace tool outside the vserver
which opens/reads the pipe and acts accordingly
- find the 'bad' invocation and 'improve' it
or remove it, if not required
- demonstrate that it is a vserver misbehaviour
which requires some code change ;)
