Note that when you rever this patch on a current kernel you do actually
get different behvaviour than when going back to before this commit.

In 2.6.30 we called ->write_super in the various sync functions and
then ->sync_fs, in 2.6.31-rc8 you would not call any syncing at all
anymore. I think this patch might just be a symptom for a situation
where the suspend code causes a sync and the mmc driver can't handle
it anymore.
