    Well, the reason behind this patch is just adding a little bit of
    cleanup code (ie., cleaning the 'lo' object) to the case when the
    kernel thread creation fails, regardless of what implementation
    loop_set_fd() uses to accomplish this.
    In fact, I think the concept it's still usable after applying the
    patch you mentioned, since after changing kernel_thread() for
    kthread_create(), the only cleanup code added is setting lo->lo_thread
    to NULL.

    Cheers,
