3.11.10.1 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Joe Thornber <ejt@redhat.com>

commit 66cb1910df17b38334153462ec8166e48058035f upstream.

The code that was trying to do this was inadequate.  The postsuspend
method (in ioctl context), needs to wait for the worker thread to
acknowledge the request to quiesce.  Otherwise the migration count may
drop to zero temporarily before the worker thread realises we're
quiescing.  In this case the target will be taken down, but the worker
thread may have issued a new migration, which will cause an oops when
it completes.
