afaik anything that requires the master process (graceful reload, restart,
spawn of new processes due to MaxRequestPerChild reached, etc..) will not
work anymore. I'd strongly suggest not to play with the master process or
attempt to get rid of it for some reason, but I am not sure what is the
goal of your test :)
