Subject[RFC][PATCH -mm 3/3] freezer: Fix problem with kthread_stop
Date
From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rjw@sisk.pl>

Fix the problem with kthread_stop() that causes the freezer to fail if a
freezable thread is attempting to stop a frozen one and that may cause the
freezer to fail if the thread being stopped is freezable and
try_to_freeze_tasks() is running concurrently with kthread_stop().
