Ugh sorry ;) of course I meant wake_up_state(task, TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE).

Then why do we need cgroup_leave_frozen(false) in wait_for_vfork_done() ? How
does it differ from get_signal() ?

If nothing else. Suppose that wait_for_vfork_done() calls leave(false) and this
races with freezer, CGRP_FREEZE is already set but JOBCTL_TRAP_FREEZE is not.

This sets TIF_SIGPENDING to ensure the task won't return to user mode, thus it
calls get_signal().

get_signal() doesn't see JOBCTL_TRAP_FREEZE, it notices ->frozen == T and does
cgroup_leave_frozen(true) which clears ->frozen.

Then the task calls dequeue_signal(), clears TIF_SIGPENDING and returns to user
mode?

Oleg.
