freezer: use dedicated lock instead of task_lock() + memory barrier
Freezer synchronization is needlessly complicated - it's by no means a hot path and the priority is staying unintrusive and safe. This patch makes it simply use a dedicated lock instead of piggy-backing on task_lock() and playing with memory barriers. On the failure path of try_to_freeze_tasks(), locking is moved from it to cancel_freezing(). This makes the frozen() test racy but the race here is a non-issue as the warning is printed for tasks which failed to enter frozen for 20 seconds and race on PF_FROZEN at the last moment doesn't change anything. This simplifies freezer implementation and eases further changes including some race fixes. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>
