Subject[PATCH 1/1] kthread: Reduce stack pressure in create_kthread and kthreadd
Subject: [PATCH 1/1] kthread: Reduce stack pressure in create_kthread and kthreadd

* Replace:

set_cpus_allowed(..., CPU_MASK_ALL)

with:

set_cpus_allowed_ptr(..., CPU_MASK_ALL_PTR)

to remove excessive stack requirements when NR_CPUS=4096.

Based on linux-2.6.tip/master
