hm, those two are interesting questions. in short - well, it might
be. I don't want to interfere with PM by doing 'accidental' offloading
etc., PM is too complicated already. so I'd prefer to switch to old
printk behavior early (besides, I tend to see lockups reports more
often when the kernel is up and running, rather than during PM events.)
but, once again, may be it is too early and we can move emergency_mode
switch.

we didn't want to spread printk_emergency_{begin, end}
calls across the kernel.

as of dpm_suspend_noirq/dpm_resume_noirq - I need to look more.
isn't dpm_{suspend, resume}_noirq too late/early? :)

dpm_resume_noirq() happens much earlier than
suspend_finish()->suspend_thaw_processes(), right?
do we want to enable offloading this early?

currently what we have is the following sequence

suspend_finish()
suspend_thaw_processes()
pm_notifier_call_chain(PM_POST_SUSPEND) // enable offloading
pm_restore_console()

which looks OK to me, frankly.
do you see any problems here?

-ss
