We can, but it's nice to show to userspace that tasks are frozen,
rather than just stuck somewhere in the kernel...

Hm, it's not a hot path at all, so set_current_state() is good enough.
Not a strong preference, of course.

So, should it be just TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE | TASK_FROZEN ?

So, yeah, the problem is that if there is TIF_SIGPENDING bit set, schedule()
will return immediately, so we're getting pretty much a busy loop here.
This is a nasty workaround.

I believe we can clear and not call recalc_sigpending() at all. Does this seem
to be correct?

Thank you for the review!
And looking forward for more comments from you!
