kthread_stop - stop a thread created by kthread_create.
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
int kthread_stop(struct task_struct * k );
3. ARGUMENTS ▲
thread created by kthread_create.
4. DESCRIPTION ▲
Sets kthread_should_stop for k to return true, wakes it, and waits for it to exit. This can also be called after kthread_create instead of calling wake_up_process: the thread will exit without calling threadfn.
If threadfn may call do_exit itself, the caller must ensure task_struct canAqt go away.
Returns the result of threadfn, or -EINTR if wake_up_process was never called.
