[PATCH 12/17] MTD: nand: make suspend work if device is accessed by kernel threads.

From: Maxim Levitsky
Date: Sat Jan 30 2010 - 10:05:53 EST

Since all userspace threads are frozen at the time the nand_suspend is called,
they aren't inside any nand function.

We don't call try_to_freeze in nand ether. Thus the only user that can be insize
the nand functions is an non freezeable kernel thread.
Thus we can safely wait for it to finish.
