Subject: [PATCH] manager: flush memory stream before using the buffer

When the manager receives a SIGUSR2 signal, it opens a memory stream
with open_memstream(), uses the returned file handle for logging, and
dumps the logged content with log_dump().

However, the char* buffer is only safe to use after the file handle has
been flushed with fflush, as the man pages states:

  When the stream is closed (fclose(3)) or flushed (fflush(3)), the
  locations pointed to by ptr and sizeloc are updated to contain,
  respectively, a pointer to the buffer and the current size of  the
  These values remain valid only as long as the caller performs no
  further output on the stream.  If further output is performed, then the
  stream must again be flushed before trying to access these variables.

Without that call, dump remains NULL and the daemon crashes in
