    So far as the swap-reuse issue goes, I don't see that a PF_ flag
    would help: the threads that already worry about such issues do
    the set_freezable()/try_to_freeze() thing, and won't get into
    trouble anyway; we don't want to force every other thread to
    have to do something special now, better just check global state
    in the very few places its needed.

    On the unrelated note: better in an unrelated thread!
