v1

Some daemon runs, say, with:

/usr/local/bin/perl -wT /usr/local/share/munin/munin-asyncd

And for the few first milliseconds, `ps -ww -o pid= -o jid= -o command=` that rc.subr uses will return that as the command, and then, it starts working, and then, the command ends up being:

munin-asyncd [aragorn.in.absolight.net] [idle] (perl)

So, here is a patch that will support "<command_name>*(<interp>)"

v1bis

And here is a patch that adds a new variable to add to the glob code.

v2bis

Fixup the alternative patch.
Comment 3 Jilles Tjoelker freebsd_committer 2017-08-09 19:49:26 UTC
Patch v1 seems sensible. Patch v2bis looks like it will not work (the | is literal, e.g. sh -c 'case "a|b" in a${$+|b}) echo yes;; esac' prints yes) and the extra complexity is probably unnecessary.
