OK, I did the following, which is what I think you wanted, plus Zwane's
observation that task_state acquires the task_struct lock (we're the only
caller, so I just removed it), but I still get the same panic and this time
the box hung. No doubt I've just done something stupid in the patch ...
(task_state takes the tasklist_lock ... is that safe to do inside task_lock?)
