  To: Andrew Morton; +Cc: Duncan Sands, Linux Kernel Mailing List, linux-usb

This is an attempt to kill two birds with one stone.

First, we kill one more user of kernel_thread, which is scheduled
for removal. Second - we kill one of the last users of kill_proc -
the function which is also to be removed, because it uses a pid_t
which is not safe now.
