    Yeah, being able to ptrace a frozen cgroup would be great for us.
    We stick with signals start/stop cycle at moment but the final target
    is the cgroups and freezer of course. (btw while were poking freezer
    code I noticed that there is no shortcut to move all tasks in cgroup
    into the root cgroup, so I guess say "echo -1 > tasks" might be a good
    addition to move all tasks from some particular cgroup to the root
    by single action).

    This is a wishlist after all, so target is pointed and only time is
    needed to implement all this ;)
