about 'init_master'

I'm a module developer, I found nginx start process is:

 1. blahblahblah
 2. listen
 3. invoke 'init_module'
 4. register signal handler
 5. fork master.
 6. master setsid()
 7. master getpid() and write to nginx.pid
 8. master mainloop()

Now I want do sth in 'init_master', but it seems that nginx do not
implement init_master hook in 0.6.x & 0.7.x,

and the prototype definition in ngx_conf_file.h is 'ngx_int_t
 (*init_master)(ngx_log_t *log);', but other hook functions's argument
is 'ngx_cycle_t *cycle'

How to do 'init_master'?

Sorry for my pool english
