I was about to reluctantly say ok and make the "exit_state" variable
in do_exit a global but then I started to wonder if this isn't
a problem with every call to close_all_files.  There are a couple of
them outside of the call to do_exit.  One is in spawn_guts and one
is on vfork.  I don't think either of those should hang either,
should they?
