Even worse, it is for root only until 2.6.26. In any case I don't think this 
code should be compiled for anything != linux. for other platforms, seting 
nice'ness is enough. 

This also (almost) applies to linux: if your process has a low cpu nice'ness, 
it is also degraded to Best-effort/low priority. you can't set idle priority 
however via nice, thats why you need ionice. 

in any case it should use some sleep()'s at good places anyway.
