One signal is used in the child for both shutdown and graceful
restart: SIGTERM. Since SIGHUP and SIGTERM seemed to do the same thing
to the children, SIGHUP was removed, and SIGUSR1/SIGWINCH is replaced
with the pipe of death.

Oh well, I guess the generation stuff can be put back if it turns out
to be necessary.
