The 'stack_size' argument is never used to pass a stack size. It's only used when
forking a kernel thread, in which case it is an argument which should be passed
to the 'main' function which the kernel thread executes. Hence, rename it to
'kthread_arg'.

Hi,

The following patches in this series perform a similar cleanup for the arch-specific
implementations of copy_thread(). Each patch has been sent to the maintainers for
the relevant arch.

Thanks, AD
