SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] KVM: selftests: Fix target thread to be migrated in rseq_test
Hi Gavin,

Thanks for cleaning this up.

It may be clearer to describe it as a vCPU thread and a migration worker
thread. The meat of this test is to catch a regression in KVM.

wrong PID

What's missing is _why_ the migration worker is getting moved around by
the call. Perhaps instead it is better to state what a PID of 0 implies,
for those of us who haven't read their manpages in a while ;-)

Kernel commit messages should have an imperative tone:
