    sendmail - pre-fork in daemon mode to avoid stall (2)
    * disconnect() and set CurrentPid on pre-fork.  This fixes an issue where
      the boot console is revoked and enters getty before the backgrounded
      sendmail disconnects from the foreground process and tty, causing sendmail
      to complain in /var/log/maillog.
      This issue can occur due to myhostname() stalls when the internet is not
      available (e.g. /etc/resolv.conf is present but wifi-only system has not
      yet associated), or has other connectivity issues during boot.
