Here's the original one without all the bitmap stuff, JUST the fix for
the hang problem plain and simple. It should apply cleanly against the
current bk. The only other small bit in here moves the test for flags &
CLONE_IDLETASK outside of get_pid since we can skip the unnecessary call
to get_pid if it's true. Except for the last part, this is the same
thing I put into 2.4 some time ago.

Please comment or apply.

Thanks,
Paul Larson
