SubjectRe: [PATCH] fb: avoid possible deadlock caused by fb_set_suspend
Guennadi, could you have a look at (completely untested) patch which avoids
possible deadlock due to inverted lock taking order on hotplug as well
as "readding" lock_fb_info() for fb_set_suspend() call after Herton's
patch to fb_set_suspend().

Thanks,
Bruno
