kthread_create - create a kthread.


struct task_struct * kthread_create(int (*threadfn) (void *data), void * data, const char namefmt[], ...);



the function to run until signal_pending(current).


data ptr for threadfn.


printf-style name for the thread.


variable arguments


This helper function creates and names a kernel thread. The thread will be stopped: use wake_up_process to start it. See also kthread_run.

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).

L'utilité, c'est avoir un téléphone.
Le luxe, c'est en avoir deux.
L'opulence, c'est en avoir trois et
le paradis c'est de ne pas en avoir !
