Subject[PATCH] freezer vs stopped or traced
Date

This changes the "freezer" code used by suspend/hibernate in its treatment
of tasks in TASK_STOPPED (job control stop) and TASK_TRACED (ptrace) states.

As I understand it, the intent of the "freezer" is to hold all tasks
from doing anything significant. For this purpose, TASK_STOPPED and
TASK_TRACED are "frozen enough". It's possible the tasks might resume
from ptrace calls (if the tracer were unfrozen) or from signals
(including ones that could come via timer interrupts, etc). But this
doesn't matter as long as they quickly block again while "freezing" is
in effect. Some minor adjustments to the signal.c code make sure that
try_to_freeze() very shortly follows all wakeups from both kinds of
stop. This lets the freezer code safely leave stopped tasks unmolested.

Changing this fixes the longstanding bug of seeing after resuming from
suspend/hibernate your shell report "[1] Stopped" and the like for all
your jobs stopped by ^Z et al, as if you had freshly fg'd and ^Z'd them.
It also removes from the freezer the arcane special case treatment for
ptrace'd tasks, which relied on intimate knowledge of ptrace internals.
