SubjectRe: re. Spurious wakeup on a newly created kthread

Yes. "don't wake up a kthread until it's all done" is a much easier
change that will simplify things tremendously.

Further it is necessary for Peter Zijlstra's rewrite of the kernel
freezer. As anything that isn't a special stop state (which
TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE is not) will receive a spurious wake up on when
thawed out.
