freezer: test freezable conditions while holding freezer_lock
try_to_freeze_tasks() and thaw_processes() use freezable() and frozen() as preliminary tests before initiating operations on a task. These are done without any synchronization and hinder with synchronization cleanup without any real performance benefits. In try_to_freeze_tasks(), open code self test and move PF_NOFREEZE and frozen() tests inside freezer_lock in freeze_task(). thaw_processes() can simply drop freezable() test as frozen() test in __thaw_task() is enough. Note: This used to be a part of larger patch to fix set_freezable() race. Separated out to satisfy ordering among dependent fixes.
