/**
 * \brief Forks a timer process based on the local timer
 * 
 * Forks a separate timer process running a local_timer.h type of timer
 * A pointer to the local_timer handle (allocated in shared memory) is
 * returned in lt_h. It can be used to add/delete more timers at runtime
 * (via local_timer_add()/local_timer_del() a.s.o).
 * If timers are added from separate processes, some form of locking must be
 * used (all the calls to local_timer* must be enclosed by locks if it
 * cannot be guaranteed that they cannot execute in the same time)
 * The timer "engine" must be run manually from the child process. For
 * example a very simple local timer process that just runs a single 
 * periodic timer can be started in the following way:
 * struct local_timer* lt_h;
 * 
 * pid=fork_local_timer_process(...., &lt_h);
 * if (pid==0){
 *          timer_init(&my_timer, my_timer_f, 0, 0);
 *          local_timer_add(&lt_h, &my_timer, S_TO_TICKS(10), get_ticks_raw());
 *          while(1) { sleep(1); local_timer_run(lt, get_ticks_raw()); }
 * }
 *
 * @param child_id  @see fork_process()
 * @param desc      @see fork_process()
 * @param make_sock @see fork_process()
 * @param lt_h      local_timer handler
 * @return pid to the parent, 0 to the child, -1 if error.
