I'm very glad to see that the overhead added was not too great.
(well within the margin of error I'm sure)

Same system, same source tree, just different kernel.
/usr/obj was deleted before the previous reboot in both cases.
Stdout not redirected, running via ssh from another machine.
No soft-updates.

My guess is that the size increase in the text area
is due to the extra code here and there to take the extra dereference
from (p) to (td->td_proc) and the places where
there is both a td variabel and a p variable. (with extra code
to initialise them) 
Possibly an extra 1K for code to initialise the more complicated structures too.
More actual code will be needed to get away from 1:1, so this is just a

the next steps are for us a s a groupt to decide if this is really the way we
want to go,
and if so, whether we want to commit these changes to make them available for
the world
to work on as a base for real threading support. The alternative is to 
do linux-type threading with processes (peter wemm has been investigating a
on this scheme).  This is probably a no-turning-back commit.

It's presently checked in on the FreeBSD p4 tree based on freefall,
so it's safe, but we need to make a decision on where it goes next.
