Hello Linus!

I am no kernel developer. But I understand what you are trying to tell

I agree that suspend to ram and snapshot should be handled differently by
drivers. And unlike schedulers - whether it be I/O or process related
ones - I think it should be quite easy to settle and decide on *one*
implementation for each feature. It least it doesn't look as difficult as
deciding on a scheduler which works for all the different workloads to

I do not believe that the reasons preventing this to happen until now are
of pure technical nature.

I think snapshotting is a very important feature. I would patch it into my
kernels if it was removed. But then I am using suspend2 anyway.
