I was wondering if anybody had a chance to review the both the patches
(SHMEM, SHMHT & SHMCB).. I'd be really interested in knowing your feedback..

Perchild hasn't worked properly since we removed BUFF.  I worked on it
for a while, but I didn't see a solution to the problem.  A few weeks ago,
I did see the solution, which was to use a filter to solve the problem of
having the data to send to the other child.  I'm hoping to fix this in the
next two weeks.
