Ouch. A second still sounds way too long - but whatever.

However, it sounds like the nice way to do that isn't by doing it
synchronously in the suspend/resume code itself, but simply ramping it
down (and up) from a timer. It would be asynchronous, but not because the
suspend itself is in any way asynchronous.

Done right, it might even result in a nice volume fade of the sound (ie if
the hw allows for it, stop the actual sound engine late on suspend, and
start it early on resume, so that sound works _while_ the whole reference
volume rampdown/up is going on)
