parentppc: eeh_event should just use kthread_run() (diff)
make sure that we always have a return path from kernel_execve()
The only place where kernel_execve() is called without a way to return to the caller of kernel_thread() callback is kernel_post(). Reorganize kernel_init()/kernel_post() - instead of the former calling the latter in the end (and getting freed by it), have the latter *begin* with calling the former (and turn the latter into kernel_thread() callback, of course).
