I've reinstalled my Hurd and the SEGV doesn't appear anymore, so my
report is no longer reason for holding 22.214.171.124.1. But there is
1.10.21 upstream with long changelog entry, so I guess it's best the
patch to be re-applied to this newer version.
I've found why start-stop-daemon signals SEGV on my old installation.
It's reproduced when new hurd package is compiled and installed. As we
know, since last hurd package upload 20040301-1, there is an API & ABI
change in libihash. libihash is used by libps, (1) so all programs that
use libps should be recompiled, including start-stop-daemon of dpkg.
Unfortunately, it's not only that. (2) In start-stop-daemon, old
function ihash_iterate should be replaced with HURD_IHASH_ITERATE.
There are two problems with this replacement. In struct ps_context of
ps.h, surprisingly struct hurd_ihash is used instead of hurd_ihash_t for
some fields. (3) So parameter to HURD_IHASH_ITERATE should be
&context->procs instead of just context->procs. And the last problem is
that (4) HURD_IHASH_ITERATE uses C99 style definition of variables
inside for statement and dpkg doesn't enable this style by default.
After all these things are made, I experience no problem with patched
