Subjectcalling kthread_create() from interrupt thread
From
I'm working on a driver that needs to create threads that can sleep/block
for an indefinite period of time.

. Can kthread_create() be called from an interrupt handler?

. Is the cost of a kthread's creation/demise low enough so that one
can, as often as needed, create a kthread that performs a simple
function and exits? Or is the cost too high for this?

Thanks,
Dean
