So far, there is such bug report. I found the issue when test my patch
of parallel non-boot cpu up with resuming device for S2RAM. Because
original code will wait all cpu up and then do other resume task, the
semaphore of ACPICA can always be get in the cpu notify callback and it
will not fall in the sleep. It's different situation for paralleling
non-boot cpu. The lock will be held by other threads and fall into
sleep. Further thinking, this may not cause bug in the old kernel and it
isn't needed by stable tree but the code should consider cpu frozen event.
