Even so, starting it from inittab is too much of a kludge.  For one thing,
it means that /etc/init.d/syslogd stop will either not work, or be an
ugly hack that fools around with inittab.

In any case, if the OOM killer has moved onto syslogd, then you've probably
lost control of the box anyway so restarting it is pretty pointless.
