SubjectRe: [PATCH v9 4/9] cgroup: cgroup v2 freezer
Date
Hi Oleg,


Thank you very much for your time! Really appreciate it.

I'll rebase the patchset, address your comments and send v10 soon-ish.

Please, find some notes below.

So this "else" part is only for vfork path. What I'm trying to do, is to
avoid flipping the cgroup state from frozen to unfrozen and back to frozen.

You're right, TIF_SIGPENDING isn't enough, we need proper cgroup_freeze_task()
with some additional synchronization.

We shouldn't, but let me double check it.

Yeah, I'll remove the second call. Thanks!

I'll try.

Sure, will switch to "goto relock".

Thank you!
