reuse startup_pipes; fix race with rexeced children too

I don't like the complexity of having another set of fds just for
handling the listen_socks. Instead, this reuses the existing
startup_pipes for signalling, but writing a char over them when the
child process has finished "early startup".

"early startup" includes closing listen_socks but also, for the rexec
case, receiving the re-executed child's state from sshd. This avoids
another race condition: at SIGHUP the listener sshd was exiting before
the child received its configuration.
