By make adding it (silently) to the args (but not publishing that through
MAKEFLAGS) when creating a child make process, if it has been invoked with -j
or -J itself.

If make invokes a shell script, and that invokes another make, it is IMHO
not part of the recursive/parallel make tree - so the token queue should not
be passed on to it.
