In both cases the system call is done by the parent process and the return is the child process. Why can't this be done the other way around, where the asyncrhonous call is being done by the child and it returns immediately to the parent? That would make a lot more sense, so I assumme there is a sensible reason that I can't figure out for how they are doing this.
