Subject[PATCH] Freeze bdevs when freezing processes.
From
Date
XFS can continue to submit I/O from a timer routine, even after
freezeable kernel and userspace threads are frozen. This doesn't seem to
be an issue for current swsusp code, but is definitely an issue for
Suspend2, where the pages being written could be overwritten by
Suspend2's atomic copy.

We can address this issue by freezing bdevs after stopping userspace
threads, and thawing them prior to thawing userspace.
