Have you heard of "quiesce" used as a verb? The sentence I'm editing

"... must be bracketed by MB instructions to quiesce the memory system.
The Istream must also be quiesced before and during the sequence."

If Shakespeare can use "but" as a verb and get away with it, I don't
see why you can't use "quiesce". :)
