[erlang-patches] release_handler_1 improvements

Hi again, Joe!

Could you please explain a bit about the situation where you discovered this
problem? I agree that the timeout and VM restart is not very good, and it
makes sense to check if the supervisor is suspended. But I'm not really sure
if it is correct to allow the upgrade to continue when this error occurs.
Even if an error message is printed, I guess it could be quite easy to miss
this fact... and the question is if that would be a problem or not? Why is
the supervisor suspended in the first place?

Regards
/siri
