Suspend *needs* to touch all drivers.

I do stopping at high levels already (all tasks are put into
refrigerator), but that can still me that DMA on particular driver is
in progress. Only driver itself knows if it is doing any DMA and how
to stop it. I do not see how to do it on upper layers.

[Take for example USB. It is not block device, still it does DMA which
means it has to be stopped.]
