    I was playing around with the bc patches and found that to make
    use of bc's, I had to actually call set_bcid() and then exec() a
    task/shell so that the id would stick around. Would you consider
    changing sys_set_bcid to sys_set_task_bcid() or adding a new
    system call sys_set_task_bcid()? We could pass the pid that we
    intend to associate with the new id. This also means we'll need
    locking around to protect task->task_bc.
