Ah, sorry!

I used the second version (with the locks) and it works for sure (~500

However, as I discovered today, it takes the lock also for GFP_ATOMIC,
and thats why I see several backtraces in the kernel log. Anyway this
isn't important.

I forgot all about this patch, and I am compiling the kernel right away.
Will put the kernel through the hibernate loop tonight.
