  Fix video playing and network connections in realplayer (and most likely
  other stuff) in the osrelease=2.6.16 case:
   - implement CLONE_PARENT semantic
   - fix TLS loading in clone CLONE_SETTLS
   - lock proc in the currently disabled part of CLONE_THREAD
  I suggest to not unload the linux module after testing this, there are
  some "<defunct>" processes hanging around after exiting (they aren't
  with osrelease=2.4.2) and they may panic your kernel when unloading the
  linux module. They are in state Z and some of them consume CPU according
  to ps. But I don't trust the CPU part, the idle threads gets too much CPU
  that this may be possible (accumulating idle, X and 2 defunct processes
  results in 104.7%, this looks to much to be a rounding error).
