    Quite apart from the sync() matter, _any_ synchronous call to a FUSE
    filesystem during STR will cause trouble. Even if the user task
    implementing the filesystem isn't frozen, when it tries to carry out
    some I/O to a suspended device it will either:

    block until the system wakes up, or

    cause the suspend to abort.

    Neither outcome is desirable.
