I don't see much point to logging the event but not printing the stack
trace, you can just disable the feature if you don't want your logs
cluttered, and this shouldn't fire very often.

This whole patch is linked enough with the previous one that I suggest
squashing them together, and expanding your comments above your signed
off by to say you added configuration options.

The panic here is not very useful, it's going to print the stack of
the task that was running when the timer fired which is likely to be
the idle task if the suspend task is deadlocked. This should call
show_stack and panic. If you take out the log action, then all this
can stay inline with the handler and be:

dev_emerg(wd->dev, "**** DPM device timeout ****\n");
show_stack(wd->tsk, NULL);
#ifdef CONFIG_DPM_WD_ACTION_PANIC
panic("%s: unrecoverable failure\n", dev_name(wd->dev));
#endif

Also, and this is a problem with the existing patch and not your
modifications, the format devname: error in the log is usually printed
by the device driver, which may cause confusion for someone who sees
this error and tries to grep for it in the mentioned driver. Maybe a
better format for the pr_emerg and the panic would be:
PM: **** DPM device timeout suspending devname ****
Ideally the message would specify if the error happened while
suspending or resuming.
