Hide kthreadd by default

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-system-monitor

If I choose to display all processes, the kthreadd process group and a bunch of child processes is displayed.

Can that kernel stuff be hidden by default please? This is not interesting to most users.

As a side note, If I try to kill any of these processes, the system monitor crashes immediately. Many of the other right-click actions does not work either.

bump. Doesn't appear fixed, in ubuntu 14.04 kthreadd processes are still shown and expanded, by default. And if I close them, it somehow re-expands itself. Please give us and option to completely hide kthreadd in the task manager.
