Would prefer to just rip that thing out, it's cost me more trouble then
it's worth.

I don't follow.  There is "user error" here in that I'm not freezing the
task before checkpointing[1], but my ckpt command is passing the subtree
flag (0x4) afaict:

SYS_335(0x9ec, 0x1, 0x4, 0xbfdc6200, 0[2542:c/r:may_checkpoint_task] check 2540

After updating to the latest user-cr I get the same BUGs.

[1] Should CONFIG_CHECKPOINT depend on CONFIG_CGROUPS and/or
CONFIG_CGROUPS_FREEZER?  We require tasks to be put in frozen state
before checkpoint, is there any mechanism apart from
cgroup/freezer.state to do this?
