    freezer: fix kthread_create vs freezer theoretical race
    kthread() sleeps in TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE state waiting for the first wakeup.  
    theory, this wakeup may come from freeze_process()->signal_wake_up(), so the
    task can disappear even before kthread_create() sets its ->comm.
    Change kthread() to use TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE.
