xnthread_init does part of the initialization. The low level part of
rootcb (its xnarchtcb_t member) is initialized twice, first by the call
to xnarch_init_tcb in xnthread_init, and then overriden by
xnarch_init_root_tcb in xnpod_init.

For any other thread than root, the thread would be given a stack and
entry point by the call to xnarch_init_thread in xnpod_start_thread. But
the root thread is Xenomai idle task, a placeholder for whatever task
Linux is currenty running. At the time where xnpod_init is called, the
root thread is the current context, so already has a stack and is
already running.
