Hi Ferruh,

I agree that your solution is more flexible.
I'll work on moving single thread creation to kni_ioctl_create next week and get back to you with results.

I think this is good idea.
But I am not sure about making this a module parameter, setting core can be more dynamic.

There is already a kni->core_id field, which is only used for multiple_kthread mode.
What do you think moving single thread creation into kni_ioctl_create() and use first kni->core_id to bind the thread? If there is no
kni->core_id set, it will behave as it is now.
