OK.

Nope. sleep_on is bad. We have to set_current_state(TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE)
before checking tq_pcmcia.

Doesn't waitpid() require the thread we're waiting for to be child of the
rmmod process? I suppose we could arrange that, but it's not particularly
clean.

I prefer the tiny race and the campaign for up_and_exit() :)

Gratuitous cruft. Just let init(8) do it.

If we don't specify CLONE_FS | CLONE_FILES | CLONE_SIGHAND then new ones
get allocated just for us to free them again immediately. If we clone them,
then we just increase and decrease the use counts of the parent's ones. The
latter is slightly more efficient, and I don't think it really matters. If
you really care, that can be changed. I've dropped CLONE_SIGHAND because
daemonize() doesn't free that, but left CLONE_FS and CLONE_FILES.
