Thomas, Rafael

A. Learning the Wonderfull World of Gmail Web Interface. Maybe w/o top
posting this time....
B. On 5.3-rc4 problem is gone. I guess it is overall good sign.
C. To recreate problem I went back to 5.2.4. The WARN_ON trace shows
(in reverse):
entry_SYSCALL_64_after_hwframe
do_syscall_64
ksys_write
vfs_write
kernfs_fop_write
state_store
pm_suspend.cold.3
suspend_devices_and_enter
dpm_suspend_noirq
suspend_device_irqs
?ktime_get
?synchronize
synchronize_irq
__synchronize_hardirq.cold.9

Comm: systemd-sleep

Would that help?
Thanks, Woody
