    Crap, I forgot to add the sign-off, so here it goes again:

    Subject: HWMON: coretemp, suspend fix

    It's not permitted to unregister a device after devices have been suspended.
    It causes deadlocks to appear on systems with coretemp hwmon loaded. To avoid
    this, we can make coretemp_cpu_callback() do nothing if the _FROZEN bit is set
    in action.

    Also, in other cases it's generally to late to unregister the coretemp device
    if the CPU is already dead, so it should be unregistered on CPU_DOWN_PREPARE.
