Subject[PATCH 3/3] PM / Hibernate: Fix ioctl SNAPSHOT_S2RAM
From: Rafael J. Wysocki <>

The SNAPSHOT_S2RAM ioctl used for implementing the feature allowing
one to suspend to RAM after creating a hibernation image is currently
broken, because it doesn't clear the "ready" flag in the struct
snapshot_data object handled by it. As a result, the
SNAPSHOT_UNFREEZE doesn't work correctly after SNAPSHOT_S2RAM has
returned and the user space hibernate task cannot thaw the other
processes as appropriate. Make SNAPSHOT_S2RAM clear data->ready
to fix this problem.
