Modified Files:
	src/usr.sbin/syslogd [thorpej-syslogd-hack-branch]: syslogd.c

Log Message:
Try to be more careful about using using the file descriptor f_file.
Syslogd should ensure that f_file is a valid file descriptor when
f_type is FILE, CONSOLE, TTY and for a PIPE where f_pid > 0. If the
descriptor is closed/invalid then the type should be set to UNUSED
or the pid should be set to 0.

To this end:
1) Don't close PIPE file descriptors if they are invalid.
2) If the call to p_open fails, don't set the pid.
