SubjectRe: 2.4.4 sluggish under fork load

I only did that because I could not find another way
to make the child run first that worked in practice. I tried
other things before that. Since Peter Osterlund's SCHED_YIELD
thing works, we no longer have to give all of the CPU to the
child. The scheduler time slices are currently enormous, so as
long as the child gets even one clock tick before the parent runs,
it should reach the exec() if that is its plan. 1 tick = 10ms = 10
million cycles on a 1GHz CPU, which should be enough time to encrypt
my /boot/vmlinux in twofish if it's in RAM.
