This is not needed anmore.  kthread_run guarantees that the newly
creates thread is run before returning to the caller.

I don't think you need this one either.  You can use wake_up_process
on the task_struct pointer instead.

Btw, it might make sense to remove sync_thread and just call the
master and backup threads directly.

Why can't this be initialized at compile time by:

static struct sockaddr_in mcast_addr = {
	.sin_family		= AF_INET,
	.sin_port		= htons(IP_VS_SYNC_PORT),
	.sin_addr.s_addr	= htonl(IP_VS_SYNC_GROUP),
}

(the hton* might need __constant_hton* also I'm not sure without trying)
