if I understand correctly, then below should be enough. I did't test it

diff --git a/arch/arm/plat-omap/counter_32k.c b/arch/arm/plat-omap/counter_32k.c

Russell, would you have any comments here ? Should we make sure all ARMs
call setup_sched_clock_needs_suspend() and 'stop' counting during
suspend ?

I will test the above diff tomorrow, unless you have any other (better)
idea on how to deal with the problem.
