[PLUG] insmod doesn't return when kernel thread is initialized

My module initializes a tasklet and then creates a kernel thread(Created
with CLONE_THREAD and few other flags)
which runs in an infinite loop and keeps scheduling the tasklet.
the problem is:
1. insmod never returns even the my init functions returns. The thread
and tasklet run just fine.
2. rmmod also does not return :-).
There is no entry for my kernel thread (which I: daemonize("My_thread")
and copy current->comm <-- "igatewaySMP")
though after killing insmod ps shows zombie insmod.
Any pointers would really help.
