Subject: [PATCH] kthread: Pin the stack via
try_get_task_stack()/put_task_stack() in to_live_kthread() function
commit 23196f2e5f5d810578a772785807dcdc2b9fdce9 upstream.
get_task_struct(tsk) no longer pins tsk->stack so all users of
to_live_kthread() should do try_get_task_stack/put_task_stack to protect
"struct kthread" which lives on kthread's stack.
TODO: Kill to_live_kthread(), perhaps we can even kill "struct kthread" too,
and rework kthread_stop(), it can use task_work_add() to sync with the exiting
kernel thread.
