[PATCH v18 08/80] cgroup freezer: interface to freeze a cgroup from within the kernel

Add public interface to freeze a cgroup freezer given a task that
belongs to that cgroup:  cgroup_freezer_make_frozen(task)

Freezing the root cgroup is not permitted. Freezing the cgroup to
which current process belong is also not permitted.

This will be used for restart(2) to be able to leave the restarted
processes in a frozen state, instead of resuming execution.

This is useful for debugging, if the user would like to attach a
debugger to the restarted task(s).

It is also useful if the restart procedure would like to perform
additional setup once the tasks are restored but before they are
allowed to proceed execution.
