Then, the operation simply isn't freezable while in progress and
should be on the receiving end of failed-to-freeze error message and
users who depend on suspend/hibernation working properly should be
advised away from using nfs.

It doesn't really changes anything. The current code is buggy. We're
just not enforcing the rules strictly and people aren't hitting the
bug often enough.

Thanks.
