This avoids the problem of .resume methods calling userspace while
userspace is frozen and a resulting hang, but does it actually result in
the drivers beginning to work again? If we remove process freezing in
STR, this should just work[1] without the need to complicate things. On
the other hand, if we don't want to support these functions in the
suspend and resume methods we could just audit the kernel and remove
them all.
