This straightforward patch is the only pending patch for v5.6 for the
hibernation functionality of Linux VM on Hyper-V. It would be really great
if we could merge it for v5.6-rc1. The patch is safe in that it only runs when
the VM hibernates, and the hibernation functionality of Linux VM on
Hyper-V never worked before. I'm pretty sure the patch can not cause any
merge conflict since nobody else tries to modify the file recently.

Thanks,
-- Dexuan
