Sorry. Added the following paragraph:

Inability to freeze a task during suspend will cause suspend to fail.
Also CRIU uses cgroup freezer during dump operation. So with unfreezable
task CRIU dump will fail because it wait for transition from 'FREEZING'
to 'FROZEN' state which will never happen.

Subject: coredump: fix unfreezable coredumping task

It could be not possible to freeze coredumping task when it waits
for 'core_state->startup' completion, because threads are frozen
in get_signal() before they got a chance to complete 'core_state->startup'.

Inability to freeze a task during suspend will cause suspend to fail.
Also CRIU uses cgroup freezer during dump operation. So with unfreezable
task CRIU dump will fail because it wait for transition from 'FREEZING'
to 'FROZEN' state which will never happen.

Use freezer_do_not_count() to tell freezer to ignore coredumping
task while it waits for core_state->startup completion.
