Russ, Robin,

Any objections to this patch?

Eric, please send such patches to the appropriate list, it's in ia64
file after all.

Thanks,
Jes

This patch starts the xpc kernel threads using kthread_run
not a combination of kernel_thread and daemonize.  Resuling
in slightly simpler and more maintainable code.
