// For now, ms never go away.
//
// The default maximum number of ms is one: go runs single-threaded.
// This is because some locking details have to be worked ou
// (select in particular is not locked properly) and because the low-level
// code hasn't been written yet for OS X. Setting the environmen
// variable $gomaxprocs changes sched.mmax for now.
// By default, Go keeps only one kernel thread (m) running user code
// at a single time; other threads may be blocked in the operating system.
// Setting the environment variable $GOMAXPROCS or calling
// runtime.GOMAXPROCS() will change the number of user threads
// allowed to execute simultaneously. $GOMAXPROCS is thus an
// approximation of the maximum number of cores to use.
//
// Even a program that can run without deadlock in a single process
// might use more ms if given the chance. For example, the prime
