You are right, for resume-during-suspend, we may as well risk it. We
have consistent state, and if we happen to write it on disk,
everything is okay.

For resume-during-resume, I don't really know how we can handle
that. Running with some devices non-working seems dangerous to me.

:-) I think we can simply make device freeze/unfreeze fast enough.
[We do not need to do full suspend/resume; freeze is enough].
