/*I'd suggest people also take a look at the (beta) pthreads library that 
somebody wrote on top of clone() (the announcement is probably still in 
comp.os.linux.announce if you have a reasonable news spool). That is 
probably actually useful, unlike my minimal example.




#define STACKSIZE 16384

#define CSIGNAL         0x000000ff      /* signal mask to be sent at exit */
#define CLONE_VM        0x00000100      /* set if VM shared between processes */
#define CLONE_FS        0x00000200      /* set if fs info shared between processes */
#define CLONE_FILES     0x00000400      /* set if open files shared between processes */

int start_thread(void (*fn)(void *), void *data)
	long retval;
	void **newstack;

	 * allocate new stack for subthread
	newstack = (void **) malloc(STACKSIZE);
	if (!newstack)
		return -1;

	 * Set up the stack for child function, put the (void *)
	 * argument on the stack.
	newstack = (void **) (STACKSIZE + (char *) newstack);
	*--newstack = data;

	 * Do clone() system call. We need to do the low-level stuff
	 * entirely in assembly as we're returning with a different
	 * stack in the child process and we couldn't otherwise guarantee
	 * that the program doesn't use the old stack incorrectly.
	 * Parameters to clone() system call:
	 *	%eax - __NR_clone, clone system call number
	 *	%ebx - clone_flags, bitmap of cloned data
	 *	%ecx - new stack pointer for cloned child
	 * In this example %ebx is CLONE_VM | CLONE_FS | CLONE_FILES |
	 * CLONE_SIGHAND which shares as much as possible between parent
	 * and child. (We or in the signal to be sent on child termination
	 * into clone_flags: SIGCHLD makes the cloned process work like
	 * a "normal" unix child process)
	 * The clone() system call returns (in %eax) the pid of the newly
	 * cloned process to the parent, and 0 to the cloned process. If
	 * an error occurs, the return value will be the negative errno.
	 * In the child process, we will do a "jsr" to the requested function
	 * and then do a "exit()" system call which will terminate the child.
