The exact version is 5.6.33+dfsg-0+deb8u1, packaged by Debian.

Reading the source code in ZendAccelerator.c and your documentation for `opcache.log_verbosity_level`, it would seem like opcache will in some cases kill other apache2 processes (in `kill_all_lockers`) if the accelerator hasn't been restarted in a timely fashion.

This does not work well with the MTM ITK apache2 module enabled, since the sibling process to be killed might be owned by a different unix user, resulting in an infinite stream of:

kill(16329, SIGKILL)                    = -1 EPERM (Operation not permitted)
fcntl(523, F_GETLK, {l_type=F_RDLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=1, l_len=1, l_pid=16329}) = 0 
.. repeating ..

Here's the backtrace when this happens:

#0  0x00007f8f5a2c5317 in kill () at ../sysdeps/unix/syscall-template.S:84

It's hard for me to find out if this is fixed in later versions or not, since I'm not sure how I can even force opcache to execute `kill_all_lockers`. This happened sporadically (2 times per day on average) in a production server before I understood the problem and disabled the opcache extension. But I thought I would send a report in case this was an unknown problem. I understand it's not strictly a problem with opcache, but at the same time, it should handle the case where it's not able to kill the process better.
