What problematic scenario is this supposed to solve?

The 'release on suspend' is only an approximation to the 'close laptop' scenario,
it is certainly not correct in the coffee table case, for instance. Instead of
hardcoding this in the kernel, userland can easily detect long intervals
directly using the event time.

Unless there is already a reasonable mechanism in your user application which
deals with cases like this but fails to account for your particular problem
scenario, the patch will not be applied.
