    Note that this also stands against a full kthread conversion.
    Marcel put my old patches for a full kthread conversion in, but
    they didn't deal properly with some of the premaure exit cases,
    and causes OOPSes.

    I don't remember what the problems where, but the case of a thread
    terminating earlier and possibly asynchronously is one of the
    cases we'll probably have to add to the kthread infrastructure
    before all uses of kernel_thread in drivers can be converted.
