 When working on a large data set, it is common that Varnish fails the ping
 test due to a long timeout. However, with 1.2 branch up to date to commit
 2337, it fails to restart child:

 Starting varnishd.
 storage_file: filename: /data/varnish.dat size 153600 MegaBytes.
 Using old SHMFILE
 start child pid 84476
 200 0

 Child said (2, 84476): <<Child starts
 managed to mmap 161061273600 bytes of 161061273600
 CLI ready
 Child not responding to ping
 Child not responding to ping
 Cache child died pid=84476 status=0x9
 Clean child
 Child cleaned
 start child pid 96371
 Pushing vcls failed:
 CLI communication error
 Child said (1, 96371): <<Child starts
 unlink ./vcl.1P9zoqAU.o

 I am running Varnish on FreeBSD/amd64 6.3-RC2, on Intel (EMT64) hardware.
