 Sometimes when I turn GSM off, suspend the device and put the phone to my
 pocket the device does not suspend. This is very irritating since then the
 battery will run out.

 The attached syslog.txt shows that the suspend fails with

 PM: Device neo1973-pm-gsm.0 failed to suspend: error -16

 and that the resume_reason is EINT09_PMU:button (0002000000).

 Is it a bug that suspend can fail like this? If not, could we at least
 make the resume_reason return something like "suspend_failed" so that
 userland could try suspending again or warn the user?

 I'm using andy-tracking a3587e4ed77974ad on gta02V5.
