    start_command: detect execvp failures early

    Johannes Sixt authored gitster committed
    Previously, failures during execvp could be detected only by
    finish_command. However, in some situations it is beneficial for the
    parent process to know earlier that the child process will not run.
    The idea to use a pipe to signal failures to the parent process and
    the test case were lifted from patches by Ilari Liusvaara.
