If it would simply iterate over all the current threads, the complexity would
be O(nr_threads). But while iterating through all the current threads, it
checks whether it is a new thread or a known thread, so that it can calculate
the delta values. This is what I optimized by using taskstats-fork, which
could be optimized using proc-events.
