freezer: add unsafe versions of freezable helpers for NFS
Colin Cross [Mon, 6 May 2013 23:50:06 +0000 (23:50 +0000)]
NFS calls the freezable helpers with locks held, which is unsafe
and will cause lockdep warnings when 6aa9707 "lockdep: check
that no locks held at freeze time" is reapplied (it was reverted
in dbf520a).  NFS shouldn't be doing this, but it has
long-running syscalls that must hold a lock but also shouldn't
block suspend.  Until NFS freeze handling is rewritten to use a
signal to exit out of the critical section, add new *_unsafe
versions of the helpers that will not run the lockdep test when
6aa9707 is reapplied, and call them from NFS.

In practice the likley result of holding the lock while freezing
is that a second task blocked on the lock will never freeze,
aborting suspend, but it is possible to manufacture a case using
the cgroup freezer, the lock, and the suspend freezer to create
a deadlock.  Silencing the lockdep warning here will allow
problems to be found in other drivers that may have a more
serious deadlock risk, and prevent new problems from being added.
