    kernel - Fix lwp_fork/exit race
    * In a multi-threaded program it is possible for the exit sequence to
      deadlock if one thread is trying to exit (exit the entire process)
      while another thread is simultaniously creating a new thread.
    * Fix the issue by having the new thread checking for the exit condition and
      sending a SIGKILL to itself.  And kprintf() a message when it happens.
