Just extend struct Client with Bool iskillable and set this
value at the same point as isfloating is set in applyrules, then
you just need to check c->iskillable in killclient().

Though, I would propose to set c->iskillable to True during
killclient() to allow getting rid of unresponsive clients which
cannot be killed straight away.

So you can delete the whole killable() function, which is also
rather slow if it is performed on each killclient() invocation.

Kind regards,
