there is not much the kernel can do about that.

Timekeeping can only stop at the very latest moment and has to resume
immediately when the CPU comes back. That's a matter of internal

Yes, user space has to be frozen first in order to make that work and is
obviously unfrozen last. So the timeline looks like this:

T0 suspend is initiated
T1 user space freeze
T2 kernel shuts down - timekeeping freeze
T3 kernel resumes - timekeeping resume
T4 user space unfreeze

So the deltas T2 - T1, T4 - T3 are what matter for your user space
program. Those deltas heavily depend on the amount of drivers,
outstanding disk operations etc. So your milage will vary.
