SubjectZombies with 2.4.15pre5 (exit.c)
Running 2.4.15pre5 (UP) on i386, running UML 2.4.14-2.
UML processes create threads on the host system that don't
die. Threads are stuck at do_exit( ), so I backed out the
patch to kernel/exit.c @ 539 (in 2.4.15pre5 patch):

p->state = TASK_DEAD;

and things work fine. I do not see zombies with anything
other than UML processes/native threads.
