  MFC r218019: Do not trip a KASSERT if /dev/null cannot be opened for a
  setuid program.
  The fdcheckstd() function makes sure fds 0, 1 and 2 are open by opening
  /dev/null. If this fails (e.g. missing devfs or wrong permissions),
  fdcheckstd() will return failure and the process will exit as if it received
  SIGABRT. The KASSERT is only to check that kern_open() returns the expected
  fd, given that it succeeded.
  Tripping the KASSERT is most likely if fd 0 is open but fd 1 or 2 are not.
