I have nothing substantial to add, but just wanted to let you know that
this approach seems like a good alternative to me. As far as I can see
the userspace suspend-blocker interface could be expressed in terms of
this kernel facility which brings android closer to mainline.

The only thing I haven't thought through yet is the 'maintain a discrete
set of constraints' vs 'just increment a number' thing. Especially if
what we loose in information through that (in comparison to 'the other
approach') is made up for by easier in-kernel-API. I _think_ if there
is any need for in-kernel-accounting (i don't know that) it could be
retro-fitted by using the trace event infrastructure?
