Installation sends HUP to PID 1, causing docker containers with bash as PID 1 to stop

Bug Description

In runit.postinit, kill -s HUP 1 is executed.

This is an issue in the case of a docker container where you are running bash as PID 1. When bash is sent HUP, it will exit, making installation of runit impossible.

As a workaround I've made my container have an entrypoint of a bash script that does 'trap ":" HUP' but that's quite a hack to me.
