* Description: This helper function creates and names a kernel

* it. See also kthread_run(), kthread_create_on_cpu().
*
* When woken, the thread will run @threadfn() with @data as its
* argument. @threadfn can either call do_exit() directly if it is a
* standalone thread for which noone will call kthread_stop(), or
* return when 'kthread_should_stop()' is true (which means
* kthread_stop() has been called). The return value should be zero
* or a negative error number; it will be passed to kthread_stop().
*
* Returns a task_struct or ERR_PTR(-ENOMEM).
