SubjectRe: [linux-pm] [PATCH] Remove process freezer from suspend to RAM pathway

Well, I believe that the USB framework copes with this, except
possibly for some corner cases like the example that Alan Stern
posted. The fact that powerbooks suspend and resume without the
freezer implies that the IDE framework, the console code and the
framebuffer code cope correctly (though possibly not all chipset

So I think that a lot of the frameworks already get it right. Of
course the quality of the low-level chipset drivers has always been
pretty variable. :)
