Started out implementing '/proc/pid/checkpointable' which reports 0 or 1
depending on whether a process is checkpointable atm. But realized hat
some patches that were discussed earlier are missing from Dave Hansen's

This patchset includes those missing patches plus two new patches that
create /proc/pid/checkpointable.

	[PATCH 1/6] Checkpoint multiple processes
	[PATCH 2/6] Restart multiple processes
	[PATCH 3/6] Check 'may_checkpoint()' early
	[PATCH 4/6] Deny external checkpoint unless task is frozen
	[PATCH 5/6] Define and use proc_pid_checkpointable()
	[PATCH 6/6] Explain reason for task being uncheckpointable
