What is a quick way to know what are non-driver kernel threads and which
aren't? (Are they the ones with a zero appended to name?)
Or which of the following need their own manpage? (And for the
others, which existing man pages should document them?)
(Also, let me know of others.)
I can work on making a simple man page for each missing. And I can submit
patches for review for existing manpages (for drivers) to make sure they
mention their related kernel threads.
