Work on the process manager has begun

Since the new revision of memory management is now working and usable, I believe it is time to move on to the next part of process abstraction, namely the process manager. This kernel component should in itself be pretty easy to implement, since all it does is to centralize information on the various parts of the process abstraction, keeping every core system component up to date when processes are created, deleted, or updated. In the end, what will likely be most difficult will be to complete the switch of memory management to a process-based model, in which data structures are not spontaneously created out of nowhere when memory is allocated to an unknown PID, but only on the process manager’s request. Shouldn’t be too difficult in the end, though.
