I was unsure about this one, partly because I don't understand it well
enough. I'll back out the change. In part, my thinking was that at
least if I stuck it in, the issue wouldn't be forgotten and someone who
does understand it might fix it properly. Judging by the vfork(2) man
page on Linux, I'm assuming it is just being used because at some point
in the past the small performance gain was worth it.
