OK. I put a mdelay(100) between the PMU_SYSTEM_READY request and the
pmu_suspend() call in pmu_sys_resume and it seems to work so far. Side
note: if you are saving a large system and have multiple swap files, play
with swap priorities to make sure the pages are swapped out to the file
_not_ used for suspend.
