OK, below is the updated patch.

Greetings,

From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rjw@sisk.pl>

The syncing of filesystems from within the freezer in not needed for suspend to
RAM and leads to problems with FUSE. Change freeze_processes() so that it
doesn't execute sys_sync() and introduce the "syncing" version of it to be
called from the hibernation code paths.
