    IMHO i think the void *stack is also a to general name, it should be
    name kernel_stack or thread_info.

    In real we have two stack, so the name user_stack and kernel_stack would
    be my favor.

    I have examined the source and and task_struct void *stack would be used
    in about 10 files.
