...which will not work anyway, swsusp1 or swsusp2. Have you actually
tried it?

During boot, BIOS is probably going to play with RTS anyway. So no
matter what you do during suspend, you are probably going to screw it
up anyway on the boot just before resume.

So there are currently 0 examples where extra resume hurts.
