    In fact there is a module in ELSA but it's just to keep a trace of the processes
    hierarchy in order to do processes group management and process group
    accounting in user space.

    The process group management is done by a user space daemon and the process
    group accounting is done by a user space application that computes information
    provided by BSD-per process accounting and/or CSA accounting with information
    provided by the user space daemon.

    Thus currently there is a module that relays information about forks but I'm
    working on a kobject_uevent solution to send the fork event (thanks to Andrew
    for the suggestion).

    Thus, I will be interesting to see CSA module in the kernel.
