[patch 13/18] V4L: cx88: Fix lockup on suspend

From: Greg KH
Date: Tue Feb 20 2007 - 20:53:18 EST

-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Robert Hancock <hancockr@xxxxxxx>

Suspending with the cx88xx module loaded causes the system to lock up
because the cx88_audio_thread kthread was missing a try_to_freeze()
call, which caused it to go into a tight loop and result in softlockup
when suspending. Fix that.

(cherry picked from commit a96afb3e9428f2e7463344f12dbc85faf08e2e09)
