Subject: [PATCH] workqueue: remove the confusing POOL_FREEZING

While freezing takes place globally, its execution is per-workqueue;
however, the current implementation makes use of the per-worker_pool
POOL_FREEZING flag.  While it's not broken, the flag makes the code
more confusing and complicates freeze_workqueues_begin() and
thaw_workqueues() by requiring them to walk through all pools.

So we remove the POOL_FREEZING and use workqueue_freezing instead.
