  • Repetitive code avoided by using inline function for testing whether we are handling a fork(), vfork(), or clone() bomb
  • Code optimisation, with help (and a patch!) from Michal Suszycki <mike@wizard.ae.krakow.pl> Thanks Michael!
  • Comments added, and code cleaned up.

Support for defusing clone() and vfork() bombs added Thanks to Frank v Waveren for the suggestion! This is because in addition to the fork() system call, clone() and vfork() can also create additional tasks.

Major bug-fix.
Instead of giving the offending processes another chance (EAGAIN:Try Again), they are now nipped in the bud.
