Subject: Re: [PATCH 3/8] PM: suspend_block: Abort task freezing if a
 suspend_blocker is active.

Hi!

> If a suspend_blocker is active, suspend will fail anyway. Since
> try_to_freeze_tasks can take up to 20 seconds to complete or fail, aborting
> as soon as someone blocks suspend (e.g. from an interrupt handler) improves
> the worst case wakeup latency.
> 
> On an older kernel where task freezing could fail for processes attached
> to a debugger, this fixed a problem where the device sometimes hung for
> 20 seconds before the screen turned on.
