    Well, interesting point would be just before this commit:

    [PATCH] swsusp: Improve handling of highmem

    Currently swsusp saves the contents of highmem pages by copying
    them to the
    normal zone which is quite inefficient (eg. it requires two
    normal pages
    to be used for saving one highmem page). This may be improved by
    highmem for saving the contents of saveable highmem pages.

    ...highmem handling was way simpler in those good old days ;-)
