Erm, I think you mean clone(CLONE_VM|CLONE_SIGHAND), and the second one
seems like a step back to me .... The flags are in <linux/sched.h> ;),
shouldn't these be moved out, or at least the kernel specfic bits moved
inside "#ifdef __kernel__"'s (anyone) ?

There is a clone based threads package avalable, which proberbly need
some debuging. Ie get, test, report bugs, ..., test, perfect -> hay presto,
one clone based threads lib ...
