add the following to fastio.c:

void* openStdin()
  return stdin;

and this to FastIO.hs:

openStdin :: IO Handle
openStdin = do
  h   <- c__openStdin
  return (H h)

foreign import ccall "openStdin"  c__openStdin :: IO (Ptr ())

btw, id this is a test for shootout - is using C code acceptable? this
way you can rewrite the whole program :)
