Subject: [PATCH 17/33] Daemonizing the Process

For the purpose of a self dump, we start a daemon which accepts requests and
acts like a server. This method was adapted from the CRIU self dump
application.

Checks if the process is running as root, if yes daemonizes it through the
daemon library call and opens a log file to log in the events of the daemon.
