The indexes are into the systemd provided environment variable of the
fds which it has produced for us. It *must* be documented what
xenstored's expectations are wrt what is in that array. Non optional and
completely orthogonal to the use of #defines or anything else.

I'm afraid non of this makes any sense to me.

If this mad list of paths and indexes scheme is The Systemd Way then
please provide references. Otherwise:

systemd case:

        int get_handle(int index)
           return sd_listen_fds(index);
no extra uses of the path or need for #defines for modes or anything
like that.

non-systemd case:
        open /var/run/xensotred/socket by whatever means.
