Of course, if the kernel lacks a mode where the system suspends because it is idle, the implementation is uncontentious: the kernel doesn't need to do anything when drivers call those functions. So Android drivers would be able to act to keep the kernel from autosuspending at a bad time, because a mainline kernel doesn't autosuspend ever and a kernel with autosuspension does something real with those functions.
