Thank you for explanation in previous mail.
Hmm, just thawing seems atractive but it will confuse people (I think).
I think some kind of process-group is freezed by this freezer and "moving
freezed task" is wrong(unexpected) operation in general. And there will
be no demand to do that from users.
I think just taking "moving freezed task" as error-operation and returning
-EBUSY is better.
