The status/maps numbers below are not only typical, but identical for
all tasks. I'm forking off a defined number of children and then query
their status from the parent.

Because I was interested in delivery overhead, I built on purpose a
benchmark without computationally expensive fields. Expensive field
computation hurts /proc more than nproc because the latter allows you
to have only the currently needed fields computed.
