Committed to 2020.02.x, 2020.11.x and 2021.02.x, thanks.

grepping the source tree, it looks like we have a similar issue in

git grep 'start-stop-daemon.*-K.*-n'
package/rng-tools/S21rngd:      if start-stop-daemon -K -q -s KILL -p "${PID_FILE}" -n "${NAME}"; then

Care to send a fix for that as well?

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
