reserved for ip, m_reserved_nodes
2009-03-11 09:59:51 [MgmSrvr] ERROR    -- daemon_files setsid failed

How to repeat:
start ndb_mgmd vanilla (which is daemon mode)

setsid is called by the parent before fork, should be done by the child after fork

      Bug#43559 ndb_mgmd in daemon mode does not work
       - reorganize the my_daemon interface so that it better suites
         it's dual task of making the application run as a service on windows
         and as a daemon on other platforms.
       - Take full advantage of the NTService class.
       - put the subfunction in ndb_mgmd's main back together, they don't need to be split
         up anymore.
       - add "mini" main to ndb_mgmd that calls my_daemon_init and does the magic
         run as service tricks
