IMHO better to do it in userspace - that way userspace can accomplish
other tasks while tasks are frozen, such as snapshot the filesystem,
or block/unblock the network.

Is there a good argument to do it kernel ?

I'm now convinced (thanks, Serge!) that it's better not to require
this unless we strictly have to.
