Hi Jesse,

thanks a lot for the quick action on your side. I incorporated the
patch in the Debian package and pushed to master. I guess having a
2.92~beta-3 (or even ad 2.92-1) is enough. You are obviously free to
decide when and what to release upstream ;)

Dmitry, Benda, Ian: you find the relevant commit in sysvinit/master
for review.
