Subject[PATCH] fs: record task name which froze superblock
Freezing and thawing are separate system calls, task which is supposed
to thaw filesystem/superblock can disappear due to crash or not thaw
due to a bug. Record at least task name (we can't take task_struct
reference) to make support engineer's life easier.

Hopefully 16 bytes per superblock isn't much.

P.S.: Cc'ing GFS2 people just in case they want to correct
my understanding of GFS2 having async freeze code.
