[PATCH] Threads shouldn't inherit PF_NOFREEZE
The PF_NOFREEZE process flag should not be inherited when a thread is forked. This patch (as585) removes the flag from the child. This problem is starting to show up more and more as drivers turn to the kthread API instead of using kernel_thread(). As a result, their kernel threads are now children of the kthread worker instead of modprobe, and they inherit the PF_NOFREEZE flag. This can cause problems during system suspend; the kernel threads are not getting frozen as they ought to be.
