I found a bug in that patch; we can't just refrain from setting config_changed.
That flag is used for more than the decision of whether to drop privs. It's
used in child.c too.

I think I'm going to end up doing a new config option TRUSTED_CONFIG_PREFIXES
which is a colon-separated list of acceptable prefixes (or full filenames).
