[SPARC]: Use kthread infrastructure in envctrl
Christoph Hellwig [Tue, 9 Aug 2005 19:30:07 +0000 (12:30 -0700)]
envctrl currently uses very odd ways to stop a thread, using various
things that should be exposed to drivers at all.

This patch (which is untested as I don't have sparc hardware) switches
it to use the proper kthread infrastructure.
