Subject: [PATCH v2] PM: Print wall time at suspend entry and exit

From: Todd Poynor <>

Existing timestamps in a dmesg only log suspend activities
(e.g. filesystem syncs, freezing/unfreezing tasks etc) while the
system has already started to enter/exit the suspend state.

Sometimes it is handy to have suspend entry/exit overhead
information while debugging suspend issues. This patch print
markers with wall timestamps at suspend Entry and Exit in
the kernel log. These timestamps can be used to compute how
long the system spent in low-power suspend state plus the
entry/exit overhead.

Resending this patch assuming that it might have got lost in between merge
window rush last time and now people might have some time to look at it.
