A number of programs, such as busybox, contain calls to fork which may
not necessarily get executed at runtime.  On nommu systems, this
currently produces link errors since the function doesn't exist.

In our Blackfin tree, we use the following patch (by Mike IIRC) to
convert the link error into a warning.  Any objections to installing this?
