SubjectRe: [RFC 5/5] pm: remove kernel thread freezing
Hi!

Hibernation:

We freeze, do system snapshot, unfreeze, and write image to
disk. Memory management wakes up (this used to be called bdflush),
decides its time to write some dirty data back to disk. Powerdown.

But state on the disk now does not correspond to what the image
expects. Problem?
