^ Honestly, this is very useful practice, because with SMP enabled
the IRQ can be triggered after .suspend() and before .suspend_noirq()
which, in turn, may schedule some kthread/work or even threaded_irq_handler
on secondary cpus (disable_nonboot_cpus() is called after suspend_noirq stage).
Funny things may happen after that :P like: some work/thread which is
servicing request from I2C device (for example) will be frozen in the middle of
its execution and then it will be resumed right after enable_nonboot_cpus().
^Issue from real life.
