[pve-devel] [PATCH RFC access-control 0/4] task worker stop update

this patch series reworks the stop logic for
task workers:
- the first stop attempt triggers a kill -15 and sets a stoptime
in the active task list
- the second and subsequent stop attempts trigger a kill -15,
followed by a kill -9 after a 10 second waiting period

this allows worker cleanup code to finish, unless the worker is
explicitly stopped a second time.

note: this requires the stoptime patch for pve-common
note: since we now don't kill -9 automatically after 5 seconds,
it might make sense to cleanup workers that should have stopped
a long time ago but are still running..

Fabian Grünbichler (4):
  make sure to kill correct process (group)
  allow setting stoptime via active_workers
  add force option to kill_process_group
  increase kill -9 wait to 10 seconds
