[PATCH pm-freezer 3/4] freezer: restructure __refrigerator()

If another freeze happens before all tasks leave FROZEN state after
being thawed, the freezer can see the existing FROZEN and consider the
tasks to be frozen but they can clear FROZEN without checking the new
freezing().

Oleg suggested restructuring __refrigerator() such that there's single
condition check section inside freezer_lock and sigpending is cleared
afterwards, which fixes the problem and simplifies the code.
Restructure accordingly.
