  When a zombie gets reparented due to the parent exit, send SIGCHLD to
  the reaper.

  The traditional reaper init(8) is aware of zombies silently reparented
  to it after the parents exit, it loops around waitpid(2) to collect
  them.  For other reapers, the silent reparenting is surprising and
  collecting zombies requires a thread blocking in waitpid(2) just for
  that purpose.  It seems that sending second SIGCHLD is a better
  workaround than forcing all reapers to obey the setup.
