    So... will you fix input and usb? Their maintainers seem to prefer
    simplicity of frozen system.

    Also, can you write down rules for drivers to follow?

    Like... 'if you get a request after system suspend started, you may
    not kmalloc(GFP_KERNEL)'

    - because disk driver may be already suspended

    - hmm, what happens if disk driver _is_ suspended? Let's say I'm v4l
    driver on cpu1. Someone may talk to me _while_ disk driver is being
    suspended... and if I'm after disk driver in pci order, I may only
    learn about suspend _after_ I do the wrong kmalloc.
