Yeah, being able to ptrace a frozen cgroup would be great for us.
We stick with signals start/stop cycle at moment but the final target
is the cgroups and freezer of course. (btw while were poking freezer
code I noticed that there is no shortcut to move all tasks in cgroup
into the root cgroup, so I guess say "echo -1 > tasks" might be a good
addition to move all tasks from some particular cgroup to the root
by single action).

This is a wishlist after all, so target is pointed and only time is
needed to implement all this ;)
