[PATCH 0/6 v3] brcm80211: kernel_thread() removal.

This series removes all of the calls to kernel_thread(). At the
recommendation of Jiri, also removed all reference to pid, KILL_PROC,
DAEMONIZE, completion, and various completion structs.
The third version correctly handles the return value of kthread_run(). So,
all task_struct's behave as follows:
1) NULL when not in use.
2) -ENOMEM when kthread_run() fails.
3) otherwise, valid and running.
Also, at Jiri's recommendation, removed BLOCKABLE(), which was not used,
because it wouldn't do what the author intended.
Each patch compile tested, please sanity check...
