I guess this has come up before, but just in case it hasn't: wouldn't it be
an idea to pass on the fd of the new logfile to the children when a
graceful restart has been requested?  This would ensure that log entries of
children in the "G" stage would be written to the correct log no matter how
long it would take to complete the request.
