[PATCH] Allow varnishncsa logformat to be read from a file

Hi all,

This patch allows varnishncsa to obtain the logformat string from a file
instead of a command line argument. The main usecase is for sysv init
scripts where shell expansion causes issues like
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=657449 .
Varnishncsa will read a single line from the specified af the "-f"
option, use that as the logging format and close the file.
I don't really like using -f as an option, as that has a different
meaning in varnishncsa 3.0.x (X-Forwarded-For vs client.ip), but I
couldn't come up with a better alternative.
