The "NGINX" environment variable is used to pass listening sockets
from an old master process to a new one during binary upgrade
procedure. (Or, more strictly, it holds numbers of file
descriptors. Sockets remain opened across execve() call, but
new process needs to know their numbers.)

The ngx_add_inherited_sockets() function parses the environment
variable in question and adds sockets to the list of listening
sockets.
