Subject[PATCH] freezer: fix freeze timeout on exec
Date
Suspend fails due to the exec family of fuctnions blocking the freezer.
This issue has been found that it is mentioned in the ancient mail thread.
The casue is that de_thread() sleeps in TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE waiting for all
sub-threads to die, and we have the "deadlock" if one of them is frozen.
It causes freeze timeout as bellows.

Freezing of tasks failed after 20.010 seconds (1 tasks refusing to freeze, wq_busy=0):

[<ffffffc00008de30>] el0_svc_naked+0x24/0x28

To fix this, I suggest a patch by emboding the mentioned solution.
First, revive and rework cancel_freezing_and_thaw() function whitch stops the
task from sleeping in refrigirator reliably. And, The task to be killed does not
allow to freeze.
