cgroup_freezer: update_freezer_state() does incorrect state transitions
There are 4 state transitions possible for a freezer. Only FREEZING -> FROZEN transaction is done lazily. This patch allows update_freezer_state only to perform this transaction and renames the function to update_if_frozen. Moreover is_task_frozen_enough function is removed and its every occurence is replaced with frozen(). Therefore for a group to become FROZEN every task must be frozen. The previous version could trigger a following bug: When cgroup is in the process of freezing (but none of its tasks are frozen yet), update_freezer_state() (called from freezer_read or freezer_write) would incorrectly report that a group is 'THAWED' (because nfrozen = 0), allowing the transaction FREEZING -> THAWED without writing anything to 'freezer.state'. This is incorrect according to the documentation. This could result in a 'THAWED' cgroup with frozen tasks inside. A code to reproduce this bug is available here: http://pentium.hopto.org/~thinred/repos/linux-misc/freezer_bug2.c [akpm@linux-foundation.org: coding-style fixes] Signed-off-by: Tomasz Buchert <tomasz.buchert@inria.fr> Cc: Matt Helsley <matthltc@us.ibm.com> Cc: Paul Menage <menage@google.com> Cc: Li Zefan <lizf@cn.fujitsu.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
