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
using
highmem for saving the contents of saveable highmem pages.

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