freezer: fix set_freezable[_with_signal]() race
A kthread doing set_freezable*() may race with on-going PM freeze and the freezer might think all tasks are frozen while the new freezable kthread is merrily proceeding to execute code paths which aren't supposed to be executing during PM freeze. Reimplement set_freezable[_with_signal]() using __set_freezable() such that freezable PF flags are modified under freezer_lock and try_to_freeze() is called afterwards. This eliminates race condition against freezing. Note: Separated out from larger patch to resolve fix order dependency Oleg pointed out.
