[linux-pm] [PATCH] Workqueue freezer support.

Hi.

I finally found some time to finish this off. I don't really like the
end result - the macros looked clearer to me - but here goes. If it
looks okay, I'll seek sign offs from each of the affected driver
maintainers and from Ingo. Anyone else?

Regards,

Nigel
