Oh, cool... I guess I misunderstood that part :-)

Um... don't worry about that so much, because it _will_ be changing :-)
Besides, if the linking portion needs to do i/o, it will tsleep(), and thus
yield the processor, etc. There are already parts of our kernel that
do computationally intensive things, and we seem to do okay :-)
In other words, I wouldn't worry about this too much.
