Presumably Peter's review comments for "restart_syscall: use freezable
blocking call" also apply here.

Please send your signed-off-by: for both patches, as detailed in

Subject: ipc/msg.c: use freezable blocking call

Avoid waking up every thread sleeping in a msgrcv call during suspend and
resume by calling a freezable blocking call.  Previous patches modified
the freezer to avoid sending wakeups to threads that are blocked in
freezable blocking calls.
