kthread: export kthread functions
The s-Par visornic driver, currently in staging, processes a queue being serviced by the an s-Par service partition. We can get a message that something has happened with the Service Partition, when that happens, we must not access the channel until we get a message that the service partition is back again. The visornic driver has a thread for processing the channel, when we get the message, we need to be able to park the thread and then resume it when the problem clears. We can do this with kthread_park and unpark but they are not exported from the kernel, this patch exports the needed functions.
