OK, I misread the JOBCTL_TRAP_FREEZE check as "jobctl & JOBCTL_TRAP_FREEZE".

But p->jobctl == JOBCTL_TRAP_FREEZE doesn't look right too. For example,
JOBCTL_STOP_DEQUEUED can be set. You probably need something like

jobctl & (JOBCTL_PENDING_MASK | JOBCTL_TRAP_FREEZE) == JOBCTL_TRAP_FREEZE

And you need a barrier in between, iow you need set_current_state(TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE).

But this doesn't really matter. I don't think you need to modify signal_pending_state()
and penalize schedule(). You can do something like

spin_lock_irq(sigllock);
if (jobctl & (JOBCTL_PENDING_MASK | JOBCTL_TRAP_FREEZE) == JOBCTL_TRAP_FREEZE &&
!__fatal_signal_pending())
{
__set_current_state(TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE);
clear_thread_flag(TIF_SIGPENDING);
}
spin_unlock_irq(siglock);

schedule();
// recalc_sigpending() is not needed

in cgroup_enter_frozen() with the same effect. Which looks equally ugly and
suboptimal, but at least this doesn't touch the sched code.

I don't think so. A cgroup_task_frozen() task can be killed after
try_to_freeze_tasks() succeeds, and the exiting task can close files,
do IO, etc. Or it can be thawed by cgroup_freeze_task(false).

In short, if try_to_freeze_tasks() succeeds, the caller has all rights
to assume that nobody can escape from __refrigerator().


And what about TASK_STOPPED/TASK_TRACED tasks? They can not be frozen
or thawed, right? This doesn't look good, and this differs from the
current freezer controller...

Oleg.
