md: export 'frozen' resync state through sysfs
NeilBrown [Mon, 25 May 2009 23:41:17 +0000 (09:41 +1000)]
The md resync engine has a 'frozen' state which ensures that
no resync/recovery.  This is used to avoid races.

Export this state through the 'sync_action' sysfs attribute
so that user-space can benefit and also avoid some races.
