I don't think there is any other way than just inspecting all the
try_to_freeze() instances in the kernel, and understanding what that
particular kthread is doing.

I've cleaned up most of the low-hanging fruit already, where the
try_to_freeze() was obviously completely pointless, but a lot more time
needs to be invested into this.
