Hello Adam:
	Now i use L4_UTCB_EXCEPTION_REGS_SIZE and i could fix the thread with esp and 
eip by exception handler UTCB. And the thread could start with new instruction 
pointer and new stack pointer.  But it still has some problem when the thread 
quit from new function. So i want to know how an thread is resumed by 
exception reply. I mean which part of code in kernel could finish the thread 
wakeup. I read the receive.c but i don't find it.
