Ensure children are reaped periodically

There is a pathological case where a parent receives SIGCHLD after its
child dies but does not reap it.  After the parent dies, the child is
reparented to init but SIGCHLD is not redelivered.

To fix this, periodically check if there are zombies pending to be
reaped.
