I got the message ....
In the attached tarball are 7 patches.
4 change the file change_owner.c in a way that the group "nogroup" is
used when the group "nobody" is not found.
kernel.ipc.ipc_stress-patch removes warnings.
kernel.sched.pthreads-patch and network.ipv6.tools.netpipe-ipv6-patch
set the correct typecast (intptr_t instead of intptr)
BTW. I now had two machines where fork07 caused a kernel lock (they
had not the suggested patch)

This is not a problem with the testcase, but a problem with get_pid().
There was a patch submitted to Marcelo and Linus recently that will
correct this. Essentially if you try to create too many processes and
run out of pids, get_pid will loop forever looking for a pid when there
is none to be found.
