I can reproduce this when suspend/resume read-only mounted dm device.

When MS_RDONLY, both freeze_bdev and thaw_bdev call deactivate_locked_super,
which seems wrong. The change was introduced with the commit below:

  commit 4504230a71566785a05d3e6b53fa1ee071b864eb
  Author: Christoph Hellwig <hch lst de>
  Date:   Mon Aug 3 23:28:35 2009 +0200

  freeze_bdev: grab active reference to frozen superblocks

With the attached patch, both remount-ro and remount-rw are
rejected as EBUSY on freezed device as expected.

Christoph, do you think this is the right fix?

If MS_RDONLY, freeze_bdev should just up_write(s_umount) instead of
deactivate_locked_super().
Also, keep sb->s_frozen consistent so that remount can check the frozen state.
