[PATCH] i386 voyager: Convert the monitor thread to use the kthread API

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Eric W. Biederman <[email protected]> - unquoted

This patch just trivially replaces kernel_thread and daemonize
with a single call to kthread_run.
