Because if we remove it completely we have to make sure that every given
suspend finisher calls flush_cache_all(), hence from my viewpoint this
patch is incomplete. Either we remove it, and add it to ALL suspend
finisher (or just make sure it is there) or we leave it but it should use
the new LoUIS API we are going to add.

We already discussed this. Fine by me, but we have to make sure it is
called on all suspend finishers in the mainline.
