* Mongrel doesn't set close-on-exec on its listen socket

Mongrel, at least in 1.1.4, doesn't set the close-on-exec flag on the listen
socket. This leads to trouble in programs that use Mongrel and fork other
programs (like puppetmasterd, part of Puppet). For an example, see
http://groups.google.com/group/puppet-dev/browse_thread/thread/463f0f8cfc80cc43

Please consider applying something like the following patch:

--- lib/mongrel.rb.orig 2008-07-17 17:44:42.000000000 -0400
+++ lib/mongrel.rb      2008-07-17 17:44:53.000000000 -0400
@@ -92,7 +92,9 @@

       tries = 0
       @socket = TCPServer.new(host, port)
+      @socket.fcntl(Fcntl::F_SETFD, Fcntl::FD_CLOEXEC)
+
       @classifier = URIClassifier.new
       @host = host
       @port = port

If somebody can show me what the Mongrel way of making this (POSIX)
platform-specific, that would be appreciated.

This probably works:

Looks reasonable to me. Thanks, Eric. Can somebody commit, please?

I've just committed it, r1036 to trunk.  Thanks for the report!

Thanks Eric. The patch is probably incomplete, as I just noticed a problem:

/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mongrel-1.1.5/bin/../lib/mongrel.rb:94:in
`initialize': uninitialized constant Mongrel::HttpServer::Fcntl (NameError)

That code doesn't have the defined? test. But even if it did, it wouldn't work
as `fcntl' hadn't been require'd so the Fcntl::FD_CLOEXEC constant couldn't be
available until it was (if it was available).

So the right thing to do is to also apply this patch which explicitly
require's `fcntl':
