PM / Hibernate: Fix memory corruption related to swap
There is a problem that swap pages allocated before the creation of a hibernation image can be released and used for storing the contents of different memory pages while the image is being saved. Since the kernel stored in the image doesn't know of that, it causes memory corruption to occur after resume from hibernation, especially on systems with relatively small RAM that need to swap often. This issue can be addressed by keeping the GFP_IOFS bits clear in gfp_allowed_mask during the entire hibernation, including the saving of the image, until the system is finally turned off or the hibernation is aborted. Unfortunately, for this purpose it's necessary to rework the way in which the hibernate and suspend code manipulates gfp_allowed_mask. This change is based on an earlier patch from Hugh Dickins.
