SubjectRe: [PATCH v6 4/7] cgroup: cgroup v2 freezer
Sorry, this version raced with my vacation, I missed it.

I'll try to read this code carefully but after a quick glance I have some

OK. Suppose that cgroup is frozen, CGRP_FROZEN is set, stopped == 0,
to_freeze = frozen.

One of the task is killed, it calls leave_frozen(). If I read this code path
correctly, only ->nr_frozen_tasks will be decremented, so "frozen" will be
"false" when cgroup_update_frozen() is called.

Doesn't this mean that this cgroup will no longer be CGRP_FROZEN even after
the killed task goes away completely?

Or. Suppose that another process picks a task from the CGRP_FROZEN cgroup and
does PTRACE_ATTACH + PTRACE_INTERRUPT. IIUC, the tracee will only increment
->nr_stopped_tasks, it won't touch other counters. Again, cgroup won't be FROZEN
until PTRACE_CONT'ed tracee does cgroup_leave_stopped() ? This looks strange at

SIGSTOP. IIUC, a frozen task sleeping in do_freezer_trap() won't stop. However if
another thread has already called do_signal_stop(), the woken frozen task will
react to JOBCTL_STOP_PENDING and stop. And do_signal_stop()->cgroup_enter_stopped()
will "destroy" CGRP_FROZEN too, or I am totally confused.

OTOH, if you freeze a TASK_STOPPED task's cgroup, this task can react to SIGCONT,
notify its parent, then freeze again. This is fine, but iiuc this cgroup won't be
FROZEN in between, cgroup_file_notify() will be called twice...
