Rather than explaining it in the commit message, it might be better
eliminate the source of confusion by taking one of these approaches:

1. Drop the 'const char *logfile' variable altogether; rename the
strbuf argument to 'logfile'; and just use logfile->buf everywhere
'logfile' is used in the current code. This makes the diff a bit more
noisy, but eliminates confusion of reviewers reading the patch.

2. Keep the 'const char *logfile' but assign it just before its first
(real) use in 'logfd = open(logfile...)'. (There's one earlier use in
a diagnostic, but sb_logfile->buf could suffice there.)

3. Just declare it 'char *logfile' and use it everywhere in the
function. This is a bit ugly since it's not obvious to the reviewer
that it is non-const only for the sake of

I fiind myself favoring #1 in this particular case.
