I think a few of these need that, indeed.  It's not that clone() isn't
a good interface -- in many ways it's cleaner -- but it isn't what the
world have chosen to go with.  Therefore I think we need to get the
necessary stuff into the kernel to support the pthreads model with
good efficiency, regardless of the elegance or lack thereof.  I have a
couple of ideas for what we could do in the kernel to improve the
current situation; I need to do a little more research but I'll try to
get this as quickly as possible.
