xfsbufd supported freezing long before this (first supported
in Feb '03), but API changes along the way have broken it at
times. e.g:

----------------------------
revision 1.193
date: 2005/04/22 07:25:00; author: nathans; state: Exp; lines: +0 -0
modid: xfs-linux-melb:xfs-kern:22342a
Resolve an issue with xfsbufd not getting along with swsusp.
----------------------------

This one, reported on 2.6.12-rc2-mm1 indicated the xfsbufd was
getting woken when it was already in the refrigerator. That was
to do with memory reclaim, but that was fixed well before November
last year....

So if there is a problem with xfsbufd running when it shouldn't
be, the problem has not been found nor has it been fixed as the
current code is funtionally identical w.r.t freezing xfsbufds
to November last year..

IMO, sane state == frozen filesystem.

Get's my vote. ;)

Cheers,
