[PATCH] hurd: Get a startup server port from a file instead of a PID

To allow easier implementation of different init systems, Hurd no
longer requires PID 1 to speak the startup protocol.  Ports to the
startup server are now obtained from /servers/startup instead.


This patch has been included in Hurd's glibc branch and Debian's libc
for a while, and we'd like to have it applied upstream.

I haven't submitted copyright assignment papers for glibc, but I don't
believe this change is legally significant.  Let me know if I need to
take care of copyright assignment for this.
