I would like to know, if somebody sees an easy way to propagate the process id
to the (disc) device drivers (I do not see any such way in the moment) in order
to create more justice in resource sharing.

Or did already somebody do something like that?

At least I found, that a single process (on 5.2-CURRENT-20040408) can be so
rude that another process cannot even read 100Kbytes/sec (although usually I
can read up to 20Mbytes/sec from my discs) [see change request  kern/71833
