Subject: [PATCH 35/37] Suspend: Invoke suspend notifications after console switch

From: Johannes Berg <>

In order to fix APM emulation it is necessary to enable apm-emulation
notifications for suspends triggered in various ways via the suspend
notifiers.  However, this will cause the systems using APM emulation
to lock up between X being needed to switch away from the VT and X
already waiting for resume in the APM ioctl.

This patch moves the console switch (if enabled) before the suspend
notification (and after the resume notification) to avoid this issue.
