Actually this isn't necessary. I over-zealously killed the thread
when it's not really necessary: the thread is frozen before calling
the freeze() callback and is thawed only after the restore() or thaw()
callbacks are done, so we're exactly in the same state with or without
keeping the kthread around (just that the PID of the kthread will
change). So I'll back out this change for the next revision.
