    killall: match on 16 character commlen too · 1188315c
    Craig Small authored
    The comm length increase meant killall could accomodate the
    larger comm name given out by newer kernels but it meant that
    if a user relied on the previous 16 character truncation then
    processes that used to match would fail.
    
    killall now checks to see if the the comm is the old COMM_LEN
    length and the given name is longer than old COMM_LEN and does
    a truncated match as well.
