[php-maint] Bug#605571: Please enable pcntl functions

Package: libapache2-mod-php5
Severity: normal

Hi Raphael, Sean,

I am enabling the pcntl in CGI module (since it cannot apparently read
the apache2 memory) in the git.

But I was thinking if this poses any security problem for fastcgi or
FPM?  Maybe we could enable it for FPM, and at most it will be able to
read some FPM memory, which just could be prevented by creating more
FPM pools with user separation.

Any thoughts?
