By the way, in the case      
if (!child)
	  syscall_printf ("pinfo failed");
	  set_errno (EAGAIN);

the EAGAIN is masking the true reason that should have been set by the
pinfo code. That may be Posix, but it's not helpful from a debugging
point of view.

If you still have some energy, in fork.cc the "pinfo forked"
should be checked for error as well.
