I intended to introduce the use of the posix_spawn to the findutils. The
Threos OS ( https://threos.io ), as you might know, does not support
fork, but it has posix_spawn. My plan is the following: I write the code
that implement the process spawning with the posix_spawn, and then the
only thing left to do is the integration.
Before I start to work on this, I have questions:
(1) Would you push the changes (after review, configuration, etc) to the
mainline? I don't want to keep the changes as patch files forever,
because the mainline may diverge.
(2) Do you know any issue from the posix_spawn's perspective? For
example, some nasty hackery here and there.
As a reference, the GNU make can already uses posix_spawn over fork,
after I supplied the basic implementation (gathered all required
information, and I put all together).
- Introduce posix_spawn,
