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.
