I believe there are multi-second delays possible when
syncing the filesystems on things like usb memory sticks.

I think the dmesg line count here isn't particularly important
and there's some small value in consistently presenting timing
information via dmesg timestamps when using 2 lines.

There's also some small value in patch 6/6 and the consistent
prefixing of "PM: " on all these messages.
