Clean SEGV Recovery Demo


Herein is a example program which forks and execs a child and passes the "used fd" number to it to let it know what fd it should use. The point is to demo that the act of execing does not overwrite the file descriptors so a fork and exec could be part of a SEGV handler for a network app which now can keep connections alive and open while execing a replacement server which takes over from where the other left off. No need to drop connection.
