Heh.

OOPS! I was hypnotized by "_bit" suffix, I guess.

Of course, of course, test_bit() must be a plain LOAD in any case, can't
understand what I was thinking about.

So in this particular case kthread_kill() needs smp_mb__AFTER_atomic(),
and "after" applies to set_bit(KTHREAD_SHOULD_STOP).

Thanks!
