Subject: Uh, kthread_wait()?

Why is there no kthread_wait() call in the kernel?
If I'm running in the kernel and want to know when a kthread has
actually ended what are my options?
While I'm asking, why are there no calls to destroy locks? I can
create locks but I can't destroy them? Why not? Even if destroying
a lock is as simple as zeroing it out, wouldn't a call to do this
be a good place to check for errors?
Anyway, thanks for any help.
