Agh, then it makes total sense to me. I'll master a follow-up patch.

We need it because sleeping in vfork is a special state which we want to
account as frozen. And if the parent process wakes up while the cgroup is frozen
(because of the child death, for example), we want to push it into the "proper"
frozen state without changing the state of the cgroup.

Got it, a good catch! So if the freezer races with vfork() completion, we might
have a spurious frozen->unfrozen->frozen transition of the cgroup state.

Switching to cgroup_leave_frozen(false) seems to solve it, but I'm slightly
concerned that we're basically putting the task in a busy loop between
the setting CGRP_FREEZE and setting TRAP_FREEZE. Do you think it's ok?
I wonder if there are better solutions.

Thank you!
