    Suspending how ? via signal ?

    Possibly, but having an explicit syscall() call is important since interrupts
    are also suspended under that condition, pthread_cond_timedwait(), etc...
    It really needs to be suspended in a way that's different than the SIGSOMETHING
    mechanism. I was fixing bugs in libc_r, so I know the issues to a certain degree
    and bad logic those particular corner cases was screwing me up.
