Your patch does seem to do the right thing for me.  Now I can run the
system at a securelevel and when I go to single user mode, I can still
do necessary system maintenance.

The only thing I saw that was a bit unexpected is that when I went to
single user mode and typed "reboot" it went back to securelevel 1
before it killed off the remaining processes.  Not a big deal, but
juse a bit unexpected.

I think the only thing to watch for is that process ID 1 cannot be
re-used even if init dies and the system magically still keeps
running.  If pid 1 cannot ever be reassigned, I think it should be a
safe patch.

In any case, I'm going to use it on my systems even if it doesn't get
MFC'd back to -stable (it applied perfectly cleanly.)
