I thought about this a bit. If the fifo is present when booting the
ro root fs everything should be fine. You wouldn't be able to unlink
fifopath or create it, but since it's already there the call to open()
should succeed. You'd have to ignore errors for unlink() and mkfifo()
and only check open() for errors. I can't test this at the moment, but I
think this might work.
