See runsv's man page:

 Two arguments are given to ./finish. The first one is ./runs exit code,
 or -1 if ./run didnt exit normally. The second one is the least significant
 byte of the exit status as determined by waitpid(2); for instance it is 0
 if ./run exited normally, and the signal number if ./run was terminated by
 a signal. If runsv cannot start ./run for some reason, the exit code is
 111 and the status is 0.
