Subject[PATCH] suspend: enable freeze timeout configuration through sysctl
From
Date

At present, the timeout value for freezing tasks is fixed as 20s,
which is too long for handheld device usage, especially for mobile
phone.

In order to improve user experience, we enable freeze timeout
configuration through sysctl, so that we can tune the value easily
for concrete usage, such as smaller value for handheld device such
as mobile phone.
