[Libwebsockets] LWS usage in multi-process scenario

Andy,

I have a special use case of LWS where multiple application processes (not
threads) share the same H2 connection:
- LWS main thread running in one process
- each app running in its own process (hence isolated address space)

Unlike multi-threading case where address spaces are shared among threads
hence callback function pointers are globally known, it is a question how
to perform callback in my case. Seems IPC mechanism has to be implemented
anyhow.

Is this recommended? Any other approach?

Thanks
