Somebody looking at suspend/resume code paths only will be wondering why
you need this, because we should be in the emergency mode already when
it is called.

It would be good to add a comment about the kexec context here.

This will turn the emergency mode off during resume before the notifier
added by the previous patch AFAICS. Is this intentional?

Thanks,
