daemon: Avoid kill -1 bug on the Hurd.

This allows for native builds on the Hurd, doing

    sudo ./pre-inst-env guix-daemon --disable-chroot --build-users-group=guixbuild &
    ./pre-inst-env guix build hello

* nix/libutil/util.cc (killUser)[__GNU__]: Avoid kill -1 bug; kill only
current process and ignore SIGKILL status in parent.
