Yes. Documentation would help a lot. Thanks.

But sys_thread_new() also takes stacksize as an argument. It passes
the same value
to cyg_lwip_thread_new() after validating it. So I guess it should be ok.

Whoops! Sorry. I guess its not obvious to others on what happens next! :)

Well, after this I should see debug o/p of my thread. Here's the code:
sys_thread_new("My thread",
                   (void *)"My thread",

m_main( void *arg )
    LOG(LOG_DEBUG,"%s started...", (char *)arg);

So I'm expecting "My thread started" as the next o/p.

Same code works fine with 1.1.1
