To me the patch sounds like something that could have lots of other uses besides renting CPU:s. For example, it might enable a secure "ActiveX-like" native code plug-in system for browsers (or other extendable apps). The plug-in would communicate only through file descriptors open at the time it is called, and would be completely unable to mess with anything else (unlike a Windows ActiveX control).
