Hi Guys,

In file sys/kern/kern_kthread.c (
the PROC_LOCK() and PROC_UNLOCK() are used in pairs in one function except
function kthread_suspend()/kproc_suspend() (
In these two functions, there is only PROC_LOCK(). I checked may related
function(such as kproc_resume()) and can not find PROC_UNLOCK() to pair the
one resided in kproc_suspend().  Why need not PROC_UNLOCK() to pair
PROC_LOCK() in kproc_suspend()/kthread_suspend()? Thanks!
