It wouldn't need to convert the whole Frameworks layer into C, just
enough to manage the suspend state.

Anyway, I think there's been enough arguments against even the concept
of opportunistic/auto-suspend, and I for one will object with a NAK if
Rafael send this to Linus.

The whole idea of segregating userspace like that, and not letting
runnable thing run is very ill considered indeed.
