You have to have both a thread mailbox pointer set in the
KSE mailbox and you have to expire the quantum.  The quantum
is system plus user time.  It is not real time (e.g., a nanosleep()
does not expire quantum while it sleeps).

quantum is in usecs.

I don't know about ps and top; there have been recent changes
to reflect more accurate display of KSE processes.
