    SubjectRe: [RFC][PATCH 1/2 -mm] kexec based hibernation -v3: kexec jump
    Hi!

    > > Seems like good enough for -mm to me.

    (For the record, I do not think this is going to be
    hibernation-replacement any time soon. But it is functionality useful
    for other stuff -- dump memory and continue -- and yes it may be able
    to do hibernation in the long term.

    It really comes from the other side of reliability:

    * swsusp is "if your kernel is perfectly healthy, it will work"

    while this, coming from kdump is

    * "if your kernel is not completely trashed, it should work"

    ...which is why can't use swsusp to do dump memory and continue -- you
    want to do dumps on "slightly broken" systems. And yes, as a
    sideeffect it may be able to do hibernation... why not, lets see how
    it works out).
