SubjectRe: [RFC][PATCH] cgroup: Don't mess with tasks in exec

Apart from race with copy_strings() we discuss in another thread?

This patch, even if it was correct, will bring much more problems.

If nothing else exec() is very slow. If it races with migration which needs
this sem for writing the new readers will be blocked. This means that clone(),
exit(), or another exec() will block too.

Now. if some IO path does kthread_stop() we have a deadlock.

Or request_module() in search_binary_handler(). Deadlock.

Plus this adds the nice security problem, a PTRACE_O_TRACEEXEC'ed task will
sleep in TASK_TRACED with cgroup_threadgroup_rwsem.
