    The Freezer tries to converge to the "FROZEN" state by repeatedly (every
    100 ms) writing "FROZEN" to the freezer.state control file (up to a
    configurable timeout). It assumes there are two possible reasons why a
    process does not get frozen during an attempt:

    1. It was in the middle of being forked and did not receive the signal;
    it will receive it at the next attempt.

    2. It is in uninterruptable sleep ("D" state). Normally, this is from
    device I/O or paging and is shortlived, in which case it'll be frozen on
    retry. However, processes can get stuck in "D" state, either because of
    a device issue, incorrect OOM handling, or kernel bugs. Under this
    scenario the correct behavior is to fail after a timeout (defaults to 60

    Freezer functions have been namespaced under cgroups::freezer.
