The patch looks to be consistent with the upstream patch. However there seemed
to have been a few follow-ups (of which the last one looks a bit worrying):

* [CIFS] Fixup trivial checkpatch warning
* Fix build break when freezer not configured
* PM / Freezer: Reimplement wait_event_freezekillable using

Ok, it may not be something to worry as that is about another patch added in the
3.2 time-frame but but so is the initial one...
