Subject[PATCH] 2.5.64 ACPI suspend/resume locking fix

doing an
echo 1 >/proc/acpi/sleep
caused quite some trouble on resume, such as
bad: scheduling while atomic!
Call Trace:
[<c011d4c0>] schedule+0x220/0x230
[<c0140608>] __pdflush+0x98/0x1e0
[<c0140750>] pdflush+0x0/0x20
[<c0140761>] pdflush+0x11/0x20
[<c010826d>] kernel_thread_helper+0x5/0x18

(see BugZilla #455).

Turned out that the suspend handling in __pdflush() was abusing
pdflush_lock, by not relocking before going back up the loop (which then
unlocked again --> refcount -1 --> haywire!).

With the locking fix below,
echo 1 >/proc/acpi/sleep
now suspends/resumes beautifully without giving further errors.

Note that my machine still gets killed completely if I do
echo 3 >/proc/acpi/sleep
, however. Any ideas? How to debug this?
