I noticed that the current linux-next branch of linux-pm.git caused the
BUG_ON() in lock_policy_rwsem_##mode() to trigger when user space tried to
access cpufreq sysfs attributes before system suspend and after system
resume.

I tried to debug that and it turned out that this patch caused resume
to block indefinitely on one of my test machines and after reverting it the
BUG_ON() stopped triggering, so I've just reverted it in my tree (it is not an
important change).

I don't have the time to figure out why this change breaks things and I would
appreciate it if you tested stuff like suspend/resume on an x86 laptop or
similar with your patches applied before posting them for merging.

Thanks,
Rafael
