Indeed, thanks !

[PATCH net-next-2.6 v2] pktgen: allow faster module unload

Unloading pktgen module needs ~6 seconds on a 64 cpus machine, to stop
64 kthreads.

Add a pktgen_exiting variable to let kernel threads die faster, so that
kthread_stop() doesnt have to wait too long for them. This variable is
not tested in fast path.

Note : Before exiting from pktgen_thread_worker(), we must make sure
kthread_stop() is waiting for this thread to be stopped, like its done
in kernel/softirq.c
