i mean i get why it is possible to resume / suspend during backup,
but really this should not be possible until the backup started

so maybe we have to have some kind of intermediate locking?

alternatively we can replace that check here
with an actual qmp status check (that is also racy though...)

also if i suspend between the paused check and the resume part
it will resume it again..
