Hi Rajiv,

Not sure if I should send this to you, please kindly forward it to the
appropriate person if not, thanks.

Peter has encountered a problem during suspend, the tpm_tis driver's
suspend callback will fail, the relevant message is:

[ 192.281757] PM: Syncing filesystems ... done.

And the problem has been there since v2.6.32(shipped in ubuntu 10.04),
and the latest upstream tree(v3.9-rcx) also has this problem. The bug
