Bug#858837: lsb-base: pidofproc should limit itself to processes in host system if running on an LXC host

Dianne Skoll
Package: lsb-base
Version: 4.1+Debian13+nmu1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Hi,

I am running clamd (part of clamav-daemon) in both an LXC host system and
a couple of containers.  The init script was logging the following errors
in the host system:

Mar 26 21:13:02 colo20 clamav-daemon[6507]: Stopping ClamAV daemon: clamd/etc/init.d/clamav-daemon: 268: kill: Illegal number: 5311 4783 4774

It seems that "pidofproc" eventually calls down to "pidof" which returns
output like this:

# pidof clamd
22875 5311 4783 4774

I suggest supplying the "-c" flag to "pidof", either hard-coded or making
pidofproc take a "-c" option and modifying init scripts.  Here's
the output when the "-c" flag is used:

# pidof -c clamd
22875

which is correct.
