Then its racy, unless you also changed the way your worker threads exit.

By the time kthread_run() returns, child thread can already be gone.

This is why I use kthread_create() : to be able to get_task_struct() so
that task_struct cannot disappear, even if the child exits really fast :

int worker(void *arg)
return 0;
