- int kthread_worker_fn(void * worker_ptr);
- pointer to initialized kthread_worker
This function can be used as threadfn to kthread_create or kthread_run with worker_ptr argument pointing to an initialized kthread_worker. The started kthread will process work_list until the it is stopped with kthread_stop. A kthread can also call this function directly after extra initialization.
Different kthreads can be used for the same kthread_worker as long as there's only one kthread attached to it at any given time. A kthread_worker without an attached kthread simply collects queued kthread_works.
