Yes, it is confusing, and yes, it should go with Saggi's

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

to fork the processes on startup, when the parent is small, or else a
huge memory load is incurred.
