Request for code review - add a flag to not auto-start child process for varnishd

Hi Poul-Henning,

Attached is a small patch to add a flag to varnishd that will make varnishd
not auto-start the child process (much like what the -d flag does, but
without the foreground CLI that the -d gives you). This is needed for
running varnish in a managed setting using the -M option, and we would like
to set the VCL and parameters through the CLI before varnish starts up.
