Pull power management fixes from Rafael J. Wysocki:
 "Fix for an issue causing hibernation to hang on systems with highmem
  (that practically means i386) due to broken memory management (bug
  introduced in 3.2, so -stable material) and PM documentation update
  making the freezer documentation follow the code again after some
  recent updates."

 For user space processes try_to_freeze() is called automatically from the
