The same way renaming "tsk" to "me" does.

For clarity since de_thread() uses "tsk" giving the impression that any
task can be dethreaded while it's only ever used with current. It's just
a suggestion since you're doing the rename tsk->me anyway it would fit
with the series. You do whatever you want though.
(I just remember that the same request was made once to changes I did:
Don't pass current as arg when it's the only task passed.)
