Subject[PATCH 4.9 29/31] kvm: Add helper function for creating VM worker threads
Date
From: Junaid Shahid <junaids@google.com>

commit c57c80467f90e5504c8df9ad3555d2c78800bf94 upstream.

Add a function to create a kernel thread associated with a given VM. In
particular, it ensures that the worker thread inherits the priority and
cgroups of the calling thread.
