Log message:
Introduce a new 'softclock' thread that will be used to execute timeout
callbacks needing a process context.

The function timeout_set_proc(9) has to be used instead of timeout_set(9)
when a timeout callback needs a process context.

Note that if such a timeout is waiting, understand sleeping, for a non
negligible amount of time it might delay other timeouts needing a process

dlg@ agrees with this as a temporary solution.
