I applied a change which is very similar.   Differences are that the provided patch didn't play nicely with prep_child_for_exec() and that there was no documentation.

Add the ability to read from a file without redirecting stdin. This allows xargs to be used with interactive programs without interfering with their access to keyboard input.

Documentation is not included, but it should be self-evident.
