    SubjectQuestion regarding thread_struct
    I am wondering if someone could provide information as to how
    thread_struct is kept in memory. Robert Love mentions that it is kept
    at the "lowest" kernel address in case of x86 based platform. Could
    anyone answer these questions.

    a) When a stack is resized, is the thread_struct structure copied onto
    a new place?
    b) What is the advantage of this scheme as against a fixed "virtual-address"?
    c) Also could you kindly point the relevant files which do all this
    stuff "shed.c"(?)
