Delay in Suspend to low power mode

Hi All,

 

We are using linux-2.6.35.3(freescale release L2.6.35_11.09.01_ER) on i.mx53.

 

When we enter into low power mode(mem), sometimes system will take around 1 minute delay to suspend.

 

We found the cause for this issue is in the function "timekeeping_forward_now()" in kernel/time/timekeeping.c file.

 

In the above function, call to "timespec_add_ns(&raw_time, nsec)" causing the delay in suspend.

 

Also observed "raw_time.tv_nsec" will have the negative value in the above case.

 

Is there any patches available to solve this issue?
