SubjectRe: Linux 2.3.39 has 32bit uid. What about 32bit pid?

No, its worse sadly -- think fcntl(fd,F_SETOWN,&pid) sort of thing.
We will need a new F_SETOWN or esle the SIGIO stuff will break.

But where is the problem?
Let me repeat: pid_t has *always* been 32-bit.
In libc5. In libc4. In Linux 0.01.
