I've pushed some fixes upstream for libuv.

Except the last, they are already in libuv/libuv branch v1.x. But still, 
there are many tests that fail.

Npm works on my machine, but I would not use node.js in production :).
I am only using some Javscript tool chain (postcss, babel etc.), which 
works very well, but
as soon as you try to fork some processes, node.js fails.
