sys/kern/kern_fork.c



Hi all,
     there seems to be a "phold" call for the parent process in fork1
function in the kern_fork.c file. Could someone tell me why the parent
process needs to be locked from getting swapped out. Are there some
potential deadlocks if we don't pin it in memory? Thanks for the help.
Bye.

A.Siddhartha.
