Nice work. All three patches looks fine.  You might want to insert "in
https://bugs.gnu.org/28054"; at the end of each log message.

Considering the use of "yes | :", even though there's an identical
prior use in tests/misc/seq-epipe.sh, I wondered if there exists a
shell/system where that would infloop. Maybe paranoid overkill, but
inserting a timeout would avoid the possibility.
