Subject[PATCH 5/7] spufs: Use a system call instead of ioctl
Date
This patch makes it possible to use a system call instead of
an ioctl to run spu code on spufs.

This is only provided for reference, the current patch is
unlikely to be used in future versions.

We planning to move to a model where creation/destruction
of SPU threads as well as entering the execution is done
with new system calls instead of mkdir, rmdir and this
call.
This will make an SPU thread a property of a Linux user
space thread instead of the global object that can be
used by any process.
