You mean the 10th. Ed/Plan-9 style rfork()?
How much extant code acutally uses it?
I think it'd cool to have a freebsd-style rfork() as well, to complete
freebsd binary compatibility. I haven't looked since january, but I
think we can do that the same way we handle Linux clone().
(i.e., we don't have to provide it to userlevel as natively something
called rfork(), but there is a case for emulating what FreeBSD does).
