Subject[RFC][PATCH][EXPERIMENTAL] Make kernel threads nonfreezable by default
Date
Hi,

Following the "Freezing of kernel threads" discussion
(http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/5/12/162) I have created a patch that changes the
freezer's behavior with respect to kernel threads. Namely, with the patch
applied all kernel threads are nonfreezable by default (have PF_NOFREEZE set)
and the ones that want to be frozen need to call set_freezable() (which clears
PF_NOFREEZE for them) and try_to_freeze(). The other (nonfreezable) kernel
threads don't need to call try_to_freeze() any more.

I have removed try_to_freeze() from a handful of kernel threads that I think
need not be freezable, but in many cases I wasn't quite sure whether or not
it was a good idea to change the current behavior. For this reason I've added
set_freezable() to the majority of (currently freezable) kernel threads that
belong to device drivers and filesystems.

Of course, I have removed the setting of PF_NOFREEZE from the kernel threads
that are currently nonfreezable, since with the other changes in the patch it
isn't necessary any more.

This patch is on top of the "Freezer: Avoid freezing kernel threads prematurely"
patch that I posted yestarday, available at http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/5/25/199
(updated version that applies cleanly on top of 2.6.22-rc3, is available at
http://www.sisk.pl/kernel/hibernation_and_suspend/2.6.22-rc3/patches/07-freezer-avoid-freezing-kernel-threads-prematurely.patch).
It has been tested on a couple of machines and doesn't seem to break anything.

[As you can see there are quite a lot of files affected, so I didn't add all
maintainers of them to the CC list. In fact, I'm not sure how to handle
notifying them of the change, so please advise.]

Greetings,
Rafael

-A: All such kernel threads need to be fixed, one by one. Select the
