Yes, it is confusing, and yes, it should go with Saggi's http://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/4318/ Too bad that that patch is still waiting for some love, verification, and most probably a rebase. Maybe you can help. The motivation for this horde of processes is to allow accessing nfs mounts with no fear of an nfs D state catching the GIL with it. We had to fork the processes on startup, when the parent is small, or else a huge memory load is incurred.
