Doesn't this change, as is, cause some programs (e.g. rsh) that always
open sockets as root to always return `root' to ident queries? Saving
the uid at socket creation time doesn't seem correct.
It's worth noting that you could get a lot of the speedup you want by
using the hash table from the user-level process rather than searching
the entire TCB list.
