I don't think we should do this, because freezer.h then includes
<linux/sched.h> - while much of the point of <linux/wait.h> was to not
include the huge chain of dependencies that sched.h invokes...
BTW., another way this could be solved is to uninline try_to_freeze(), it
seems a bit large at first sight to be inlined - but I could be wrong.
Once it's not inline we could just add this to wait.h:
extern bool try_to_freeze(void);
or so. This decouples wait.h from freezer.h.
