My concern is that de_thread fix might be too disruptive for stable
kernels while we might want to have a simple enough fix for the the
suspend issue in the meantime. That was actually the primary reason I've
acked the hack even though I didn't like it.

So can we find a way to shut the lockdep up when this is not really a
deadlock? Or maybe this really is one and then we need a real fix for
stable as well.
