Subjectmore thread_info patches
Hi,

> thread_info, part 1:

Here are some possible followup patches. Since it's already some time ago
here are the original posts for everyone else:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=111410539627881&w=2

This introduces an additional stack variable in task_struct. It's
basically redundant with the thread_info pointer, but in the long term I'd
like to get of the latter (with the following patches).

bye, Roman
