This has been considered in the patch #7/7. There shouldn't be a problem here (in theory).

Suspend/hibernate calls callback bsp_pm_callback() and must pass this check before it can continue.

When CPU0 is offline, bsp_pm_callback() returns -ENODEV and suspend/hibernate fails. When CPU0 is online, bsp_pm_callback() returns 0 and suspend/hibernate can continue.

So when CPU0 is offline, system cannot suspend/hibernate. Suspend/hibernate can succeed only when CPU0 is online.

Plus the patch #7/7 considers race condition by pm_notifier_call_chain()'s priority in pm call chain. So there should be race issue here.

Thanks.
