In cases where I have listed the bug as "fixed" or "fixed upstream" it
indicates the issue is solved in the current development branch of
sysvinit. In this case it's the 2.92 branch, which will likely reach a
stable state around the start of 2019.

The 2.91 branch was made "stable" last month and is not receiving any
new changes.
