Subject[25/71] PM: Fix warning in pm_restrict_gfp_mask() during SNAPSHOT_S2RAM ioctl
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Rafael J. Wysocki <>

commit 87186475a402391a1ca7d42a675c9b35a18dc348 upstream.

A warning is printed by pm_restrict_gfp_mask() while the
SNAPSHOT_S2RAM ioctl is being executed after creating a hibernation
image, because pm_restrict_gfp_mask() has been called once already
before the image creation and suspend_devices_and_enter() calls it
once again. This happens after commit 452aa6999e6703ffbddd7f6ea124d3
(mm/pm: force GFP_NOIO during suspend/hibernation and resume).

To avoid this issue, move pm_restrict_gfp_mask() and
pm_restore_gfp_mask() from suspend_devices_and_enter() to its caller
in kernel/power/suspend.c.
