I added this given ext4's current thaw implementation stalls on resume
as it implicates a bio_submit() and this never completes. So I refactored
ext4 thaw skip a sync on thaw. This requires more eyeballs. This may be an
underlying issue elsewhere. If its not an bug elsewhere or on ordering, then
there may be some restrictions on thaw when used on resume. Refer to my notes
to Ted on patch #4 for ext4.

No, I run time tested it with a rootfs with ext4 and xfs with my
development tree and hammering on both while I loop on suspend
and resume.

Yeap, yuk!

Groovy, thanks, I suspected that locking was convoluted and
we could come up with something better. Will do it this way.

Its really what I hoped we could do :) I just needed to get
it in writing.
