BTW, I'd like to get rid of this code.

Can't we use other techniques for detecting fork-bomb ?

This check can't catch following type, anyway.

   fork()
     -> fork()
          -> fork()
               -> fork()
                    ....

but I have no good idea.
What is the difference with task-launcher and fork bomb()...

Thanks,
