Once again, this is not about assigned values. This is about the time
before you get a value assigned. Not every experiment out there will
have a value assigned before it starts development.

But it really doesn't matter to me. I'm not the one you would introduce
the problem. Patch is forthcoming.

Not according to POSIX. If some OSes deliberately violate POSIX that's
their problem. All POSIX OSes will have up to today return a new file
descriptor without the close-on-exec flag set at all times. Just read
the spec.
