Power management fix for 3.3-rc2

Fix for a hibernate (s2disk) regression introduced during the 3.2
merge window that causes s2disk to trigger BUG_ON() in
freeze_workqueues_begin() if there is not enough swap space to save
the image.

PM / Hibernate: Fix s2disk regression related to freezing workqueues

Commit 2aede851ddf08666f68ffc17be446420e9d2a056

  PM / Hibernate: Freeze kernel threads after preallocating memory

introduced a mechanism by which kernel threads were frozen after
the preallocation of hibernate image memory to avoid problems with
frozen kernel threads not responding to memory freeing requests.
However, it overlooked the s2disk code path in which the
SNAPSHOT_CREATE_IMAGE ioctl was run directly after SNAPSHOT_FREE,
which caused freeze_workqueues_begin() to BUG(), because it saw
that worqueues had been already frozen.

Although in principle this issue might be addressed by removing
the relevant BUG_ON() from freeze_workqueues_begin(), that would
reintroduce the very problem that commit 2aede851ddf08666f68ffc17be4
attempted to avoid into that particular code path.  For this reason,
to fix the issue at hand, introduce thaw_kernel_threads() and make
the SNAPSHOT_FREE ioctl execute it.

Special thanks to Srivatsa S. Bhat for detailed analysis of the
problem.
