    Subject[PATCH 0/4] allow freezing of tasks with netfs calls in flight
    We've had a number of reports recently of people with NFS and CIFS
    mounts that were unable to suspend or hibernate their machines. Here
    are a couple of Fedora bugs that illustrate the problem:

    When it occurs the problem is pretty clear. We have a task that's
    sleeping in the kernel in TASK_KILLABLE sleep, generally waiting
    for a reply to come in. Often though, userspace has already taken
    down the interface so that reply will never come. The process then
    fails to freeze and the suspend fails.

    This patch fixes this by allowing the TASK_KILLABLE sleeps in NFS and
    CIFS to be awoken by the freezer and then to try to freeze. If a freeze
    event does occur, then the code will treat it as if a schedule() has
    already occured.

    I've had a number of people test versions of this set and the results
    have been positive. Part of the problem though is that there are
    sometimes still unrelated problems with suspend/resume that seem to
    cloud the results. As best we can tell though, this patchset does work
    as advertised.

    Jeff Layton (4):
    freezer: make fake_signal_wake_up wake TASK_KILLABLE tasks too
    cifs, freezer: add wait_event_freezekillable and have cifs use it
    sunrpc: make rpc_wait_bit_killable handle freeze events
    nfs: make TASK_KILLABLE sleeps attempt to freeze
