Yeah, that was my expectation as well. There's a point when we just
have too many kinds of checkpoint objects and the switch statements get
out of hand. Oversimplified, of course, but:

init_restart_handler(CR_FD_GENERIC, restore_generic_fd);
init_restart_handler(CR_FD_SOCKET, restore_socket);
init_restart_handler(CR_FD_PIPE, restore_pipe);

The only question to me is whether we allow the handler functions to do
further reading of the checkpoint image or whether the higher-level code
should be feeding them all the data they'll need in some way.
