Thanks for your reply Jeff.

It appears race condition in reading/writing daemon.log is not the only issue of
t5570. On a different machine I've just randomly got:

t5570-git-daemon.sh[163]: can't create git_daemon_output: Interrupted system call

which I believe might also be associated with concurrent processing of piped
data connected with a fact that test restarts daemon few times. I can barely
wrap my head around it but I guess it's somewhat around "shell still tries to
read fifo while attempt to create new one is made".
