To everyone involved: the fact that this change, which was likely to introduce

Well, we spent an massive amount of time in testing, reviewing and
discussion and it definitely did not break suspend/resume here.
I'm not saying that you didn't consider it thoroughly, but unfortunately you
did overlook this particular issue, didn't you?

This was not pushed without a lot of thoughts and in fact what you are
seing is another long standing bug in the timekeeping resume code,
which was just papered over by the incorrect handling of the clock was
set cases in the other parts of the system.

Does the following patch fix the problem for you ?
Yes, it does, thanks!

@John: Should that clear ntp as well or is it enough to set ntp_error
to 0 ?

/me really goes on vacation now.
So who's going to take care of the patch? :-)
I'm still packing gear. So i'll push it into timers/urgent.
Actually that's a bad idea. John want's to double check vs. the
ntp_clear question. So John can send it to linus directly.

@John: Should it be: timekeeping_update(true)
I think its better to leave it as false, so we don't reset the NTP state machine completely after suspend.

When we come back from suspend our error is usually off by the persistent_clock/rtc granularity, so it might make sense, but I'd want a lot more testing of using ntp over suspend before changing the existing behavior of not doing it.

Now I'm gone for real.
Ok. Thanks for spinning this up so quickly. I'll go ahead and send it on to Linus.
