    Looks good. Anyone know if this works ok with Rails 4.2.0 now? Or should I wait with the upgrade till Rails 5.0?

          Psychedelics and software don't really go together. A very stupid picture.

            Good stuff. The vfork stuff is quite amusing though. It's a very controversial call and they appear to acknowledge that. I actually thought it did the same thing as fork on regular Linux systems but I am mistaken so there could be some performance benefit here. However the only situation where it's even remotely safe to use it is when you want to do a fork, immediately followed by an execve. Some systems like Blackfin don't support fork but I doubt this opens up Ruby to those. Having said that, I did find this so someone must have tried it.
