    Subject[PATCH] powerpc pseries eeh: Convert to kthread API
    Date
    From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com> - unquoted

    This patch modifies the startup of eehd to use kthread_run
    not a combination of kernel_thread and daemonize. Making
    the code slightly simpler and more maintainable.
