To some extent there is no problem there. The EPICS assumption is that
the db scan threads can and will starve the ca server and db ca link
threads if the user configures them to use all available CPU.
Admittedly, user might need to use the network for other purposes
outside the scope of EPICS like debugging, but this gets back to the
issue of how the system admin would raise the priority of the shell, or
in this case the network, on demand.
