If we are using the chroot() option or the setuid options, we must create the
pidfile before doing the chroot OR the setreuid. It's actually best for
start-stop-daemon if we create the pidfile from the master side of the fork()
before it exits, since most of the startup checks happen after the chroot()
unfortunetly.
