Thanks for the patch. After pushing that to master, I've noticed that
this change has an unwanted side effect: starter does not wait for
charon startup, but just goes on. This implies that it tries to load
ipsec.conf through the stroke interface, which is not available. On my
system, this breaks configuration loading.

Should we instead just wait indefinitely before returning here?
