This uses the existing filesystem freeze and thaw callbacks to
freeze each filesystem on suspend/hibernation and thaw upon resume.

This is needed so that we properly really stop IO in flight without
races after userspace has been frozen. Without this we rely on
kthread freezing and its semantics are loose and error prone.
For instance, even though a kthread may use try_to_freeze() and end
up being frozen we have no way of being sure that everything that
has been spawned asynchronously from it (such as timers) have also
been stopped as well.

A long term advantage of also adding filesystem freeze / thawing
supporting durign suspend / hibernation is that long term we may
be able to eventually drop the kernel's thread freezing completely
as it was originally added to stop disk IO in flight as we hibernate
or suspend.

This also implies that many kthread users exist which have been
adding freezer semantics onto its kthreads without need. These also
will need to be reviewed later.

This is based on prior work originally by Rafael Wysocki and later by
Jiri Kosina.
