I've stumbled across [1] which describes a way to use cpu ressources in a 
way that does sub-tick task-switching, so that other processes get 
accounted while the mallicious process still takes an arbitrary CPU whare. 
Apparently FreeBSD's 4BSD and ULE schedulers are vulnerable.

I wonder how NetBSD goes in that regard - can you tell?
