This makes process_status_msg() return a null pointer instead of a
string.  That could cause problems for the caller (e.g. segfault).  I
think it would be better to return a malloc()'d string for
consistency.  (Probably doesn't matter but just in case.)

process_wait() could be implemented as OVS_NOT_REACHED() since after
all it shouldn't be possible to get a valid "struct process *" on
