  Back out fd optimization introduced in revision 1.280 as it appears to be
  really breaking things. Simple "close(0); dup(fd)" does not return descriptor
  "0" in some cases. Further, this change also breaks some MAC interactions with
  mac_execve_will_transition().  Under certain circumstances, fdcheckstd() can
  be called in execve(2) causing an assertion that checks to make sure that
  stdin, stdout and stderr reside at indexes 0, 1 and 2 in the process fd table
  to fail, resulting in a kernel panic when INVARIANTS is on.
  This should also kill the "dup(2) regression on 6.x" show stopper item on the
  6.1-RELEASE TODO list.
  This is a RELENG_6 candidate.
