FreeBSD: VID-31AD2F10-7711-11EB-B87A-901B0EF719AB (CVE-2020-25581): FreeBSD -- jail_remove(2) fails to kill all jailed processes

Description
Details for this vulnerability have not been published by NIST at this point. Descriptions from software vendor advisories for this issue are provided below.From VID-31AD2F10-7711-11EB-B87A-901B0EF719AB: Problem Description: Due to a race condition in the jail_remove(2) implementation, it may fail to kill some of the processes. Impact: A process running inside a jail can avoid being killed during jail termination. If a jail is subsequently started with the same root path, a lingering jailed process may be able to exploit the window during which a devfs filesystem is mounted but the jail's devfs ruleset has not been applied, to access device nodes which are ordinarily inaccessible. If the process is privileged, it may be able to escape the jail and gain full access to the system.

    Thanks for everything Templateism - You should have written the code a little more complicated
