From: Michael Neuling <mikey@neuling.org>

Unfortunately userspace can construct a sigcontext which enables
suspend. Thus userspace can force Linux into a path where trechkpt is
executed.

This patch blocks this from happening on POWER9 by sanity checking
sigcontexts passed in.

ptrace doesn't have this problem as only MSR SE and BE can be changed
via ptrace.

This patch also adds a number of WARN_ON() in case we ever enter
suspend when we shouldn't. This should catch systems that don't have
the firmware change and are running TM.
