    If the regs are garbage, copy_thread() will explode as it tries
    to interpret the stack pointer in that regs value.

    The parent's regs (stored in current_thread_info() at trap time,
    and also needed by copy_thread() processing) will also be garbage
    since we're avoiding the fork syscall trap.

    In short, this won't work :)

    This is why I use kernel_thread(). Why is that so bad?
