It doesn't really make sense to keep in the thread structure. The only
reason to have a field there are kernel threads and those are quite
exceptional any way. They are also a clear minority. What about making
the td_comm a simple pointer to the real data? For kernel threads we can
allocate it and for real processes it points into struct proc.
