* argc: the number of elements in argv
* argv: an array of strings containing the command to be executed and its
* arguments as separate strings. argv does not need to be
* status: the equivalent child status as populated by wait(status). This
* value is only valid when logwrap successfully completes. If NULL
* the return value of the child will be the function's return value.
* ignore_int_quit: set to true if you want to completely ignore SIGINT and
* SIGQUIT while logwrap is running. This may force the end-user to
* send a signal twice to signal the caller (once for the child, and
* once for the caller)
* log_target: Specify where to log the output of the child, either LOG_NONE,
* LOG_ALOG (for the Android system log), LOG_KLOG (for the kernel
* log), or LOG_FILE (and you need to specify a pathname in the
* file_path argument, otherwise pass NULL). These are bit fields,
* and can be OR'ed together to log to multiple places.
* abbreviated: If true, capture up to the first 100 lines and last 4K of
* output from the child. The abbreviated output is not dumped to
* the specified log until the child has exited.
* file_path: if log_target has the LOG_FILE bit set, then this parameter
* must be set to the pathname of the file to log to.
* Return value:
* 0 when logwrap successfully run the child process and captured its status
* -1 when an internal error occurred
* -ECHILD if status is NULL and the child didn't exit properly
* the return value of the child if it exited properly and status is NULL
