Creating utmpx Entries

Port monitors are responsible for creating utmpx entries with the type field set to USER_PROCESS for services they start, if this action has been specified, that is, if -fu was specified in the pmadm line that added the service. These utmpx entries can in turn be modified by the service. When the service terminates, the utmpx entry must be set to DEAD_PROCESS.
