upgrade cpu :-)

it could be solved if clamav can save main.cvd into main.cld 
(uncompressed signed database) this will save or reduce cpu load on 
reload sigs, to make things worse clamav keeps old database loaded while 
reloading new databases, if all databases is compressed it takes more 
cpu time, its btw not a bug

i kindly ask developers to make sigtool save uncompressed data files, to 
help reduce cpu time on reloads
