freezer: skip waking up tasks with PF_FREEZER_SKIP set
Android goes through suspend/resume very often (every few seconds when
on a busy wifi network with the screen off), and a significant portion
of the energy used to go in and out of suspend is spent in the
freezer. If a task has called freezer_do_not_count(), don't bother
waking it up. If it happens to wake up later it will call
freezer_count() and immediately enter the refrigerator.
Combined with patches to convert freezable helpers to use
freezer_do_not_count() and convert common sites where idle userspace
tasks are blocked to use the freezable helpers, this reduces the
time and energy required to suspend and resume.
