It would be great if this worked but I think we looked at it before and
it seems nice until you hit the futex stuff and robust lists (I don't
fully remember the details). Some of the structures (siginfo) would no
longer be POSIX compliant and some of them aren't only accessed via libc
to be able to create shadow copies.
