5 * Many parts of Git have subprograms communicate via pipe, expect the
6 * upstream of a pipe to die with SIGPIPE when the downstream of a
7 * pipe does not need to read all that is written. Some third-party
8 * programs that ignore or block SIGPIPE for their own reason forget
9 * to restore SIGPIPE handling to the default before spawning Git and
10 * break this carefully orchestrated machinery.
12 * Restore the way SIGPIPE is handled to default, which is what we
13 * expect.

29 * in die(). It also avoids messing up when the pipes are dup'ed
