I am pretty sure you wrote it yourself in :
"By making use of a Linux-specific prctl(2) call, we effectively tie
Upstart to systems running with a Linux kernel. This is a major
restriction, but porting to other systems is already complicated by the
fact that even the BSDs do not provide a full POSIX environment (missing
"waitid(2)" for example)."
