Hi all.

Have a strange question: is it possible to create new process (using
fork or fork1) from inside of ip_input()?

In kernel sources i found example of using fork1 in init_main.c but
looking into ip_input.c i do not understand where i can get pointers to
a thread and parent process to pass it into fork1.
