Based on a report by Coverity.  waitpid() can leak resources if it
fails with EINTR, so it should never be used without checking return
status.  But we already have a helper function that does that, so

This entire method goes away on my patches here


I guess I'd better review that, then :)

ACK to the other chunks

OK, I split out the lxc_controller fixes (I'm saving them on my tree, though, until I know that your patches are in), and pushed the rest.
