    SubjectRe: [PATCH] Don't refill pcp lists during SWSUSP.

    This adds external (and pretty ugly) dependency of swsusp on the
    outside. And as it still needs to drain_local_pages(), nothing is
    gained. I believe it is better to just call drain_local_pages few
    times. Magic hooks "if suspending, don't do this" seem like wrong
    approach to me.
