This of course is subject to a race -- the chaff may not execute before the
gcc has spun off a child or two.

I like this one *much* better, it is functionally equivalant to cpuselect,
if one puts parens
around the whole thing to keep chaff from infecting with a bias subsequent

It ideal solution might be to add nohup-like capability to the existing
chaff command:

./chaff 0x6 $$ 1234 43213 ... lots of other pids ... (note my
proposed reversal of pid & bias)
./chaff 0x6 -c gcc -c module.c
