Subject[PATCH v3 03/22] kthread: Allow to call __kthread_create_on_node() with va_list args
Date
kthread_create_on_node() implements a bunch of logic to create
the kthread. It is already called by kthread_create_on_cpu().

We are going to extend the kthread worker API and will
need to call kthread_create_on_node() with va_list args there.

This patch does only a refactoring and does not modify the existing
behavior.
