Subjectbetter oopsing when frozen
Date
Hi Rafael,

I had a problem with the kernel stopping the machine forever because I got an
oops while tasks were frozen. It seems to me that we should thaw when this
happens. How about this approach?

Regards
Oliver

Subject: [PATCH] unfreeze tasks if an oops happens while tasks are frozen

If an oops kills the task suspending or snapshotting
is system, the system is dead because the action is
never completed and the tasks never thawed.
