freezer: make freezing() test freeze conditions in effect instead of TIF_FREEZE
Using TIF_FREEZE for freezing worked when there was only single freezing condition (the PM one); however, now there is also the cgroup_freezer and single bit flag is getting clumsy. thaw_processes() is already testing whether cgroup freezing in in effect to avoid thawing tasks which were frozen by both PM and cgroup freezers. This is racy (nothing prevents race against cgroup freezing) and fragile. A much simpler way is to test actual freeze conditions from freezing() - ie. directly test whether PM or cgroup freezing is in effect. This patch adds variables to indicate whether and what type of freezing conditions are in effect and reimplements freezing() such that it directly tests whether any of the two freezing conditions is active and the task should freeze. On fast path, freezing() is still very cheap - it only tests system_freezing_cnt. This makes the clumsy dancing aroung TIF_FREEZE unnecessary and freeze/thaw operations more usual - updating state variables for the new state and nudging target tasks so that they notice the new state and comply. As long as the nudging happens after state update, it's race-free. * This allows use of freezing() in freeze_task(). Replace the open coded tests with freezing(). * p != current test is added to warning printing conditions in try_to_freeze_tasks() failure path. This is necessary as freezing() is now true for the task which initiated freezing too. -v2: Oleg pointed out that re-freezing FROZEN cgroup could increment system_freezing_cnt. Fixed. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Acked-by: Paul Menage <paul@paulmenage.org> (for the cgroup portions)
