[alsa-devel] Power management state flow in ALSA

In suspend () the application is dead (freezed state) before ALSA
driver suspend() is called, so in this there is no way application
will get to know the SUSPENDED state of driver.
In resume () ALSA driver resume () (changes the state of driver) is
called first and then applications are activated.
So how the application will get to know the SUSPENDED state of driver
through syscall.No syscall () from ALSA apps(freezed) is happening
during the SUSPENDED duration of ALSA driver.
Am i going wrong ?
