SubjectRe: [PATCH 5/7] sh64: remove the use of kernel syscalls

It makes more sense to just rip out the old debug code, since we don't
really have that much of a need for it anymore, it was mostly something
that was handy during the initial bringup. This also brings us closer to
something that looks like readable code again..

I also added a sane kernel_thread() implementation that gets away from
this, so that should take care of sh64 at least.
