And two more commits on top of it, to workaround issues with this clone()
call on niche architectures.

First, there is no clone() on ia64, but there is a __clone2() with a
slightly different semantics instead.  The latter is documented but
no prototype is provided by glibc.

Second, it crashes with SIGBUS on hppa which is not happy with the
child_stack address.

When using obscure functions like clone(), issues are popping up
like mushrooms after the rain.
