Hi! I will look at dm_internal_suspend. Anyway use case for suspend is
from dm-crypt to do both operations: suspend + key wipe. It means that
without entering key again from userspace, resume is not possible. So my
question is: It is possible to do internal suspend and then using resume
from userspace via ioctl?
