Pavel,

I disagree here. While my patch is a right thing to do (and as you
know is already merged in mainline) it is not "better". Swsusp should
not rely on the other subsystems being "nice" to it. Even with my
patch there still could be moments when some thread is not suspended
in 6 seconds when resuming causing unneeded resume failure and
subsequent fsck.

Please consider merging the patch below.

Swsusp: do not time-out when stopping tasks while resuming

When stopping tasks during esume process there is no point of
eastablishing a timeout because teh process is past the point
of no return; there is no possible recovery from failure. If
stopping tasks fails resume is aborted and user is forced to
do fsck anyway.
