Description

In #12675, the ability to create kernel-only worker threads in a process was added. It would be valuable to add details about this to the system documentation. At the very least proc(4) should be updated to reflect the "weird" nature of such LWPs. It would also be nice to find a place in the docs for an example on how to create and "properly" operate such a thread.
