Sure, if you're not using opportunistic suspend then I don't think
there's any real need for the userspace side of this. The question is
how to implement something with the useful properties of opportunistic
suspend without without implementing something pretty much equivalent to
the userspace suspend blockers. I've sent another mail expressing why I
don't think your proposed QoS style behaviour provides that.
