As mentioned in my previous mail:
All I want to achieve here is to flush all outstanding Data-Out PDUs
_before_ the SUSPEND bit is set.
If all Data-Out PDUs are queued in the 'requeue' list _and_ we were
to go with my 'traverse all Data-Out PDUs' patch this patch might
not be necessary.

I tried something similar, but this struck me as overly
complicated as a first stab.
But since you mention it, ok, do it.
