No, pre_mpm doesn't pass anything from parent->child [that would be
broken already by the pre_mpm-only-once patch.]

The create_process logic within mpm_winnt calls two passing fns,
one of handles in general, one for the listeners.  It's invoked every
time we create a child.

We have two matching fn's called by child_main() that slurp those
general handlers and listeners, respectively.

Whatever the ap_scoreboard_shm's os_handle, we pass it.  We
call ap_scoreboard_init, not to init the score, but to init the
local storage, e.g. array pointers into the scoreboard memory.
The memory isn't passed to the child, the handle to this memory
is passed; the child reopens the scoreboard by its handle.
