That would work, but I still don't see why it's better. With either
of your changes, the power.completion variable is storing state, and
not just used for notification. However, the exact meaning of that
state is unclear, especially during the transition from an aborted
suspend to resume, and the state is duplicating power.status. Setting
it to complete in dpm_prepare is especially confusing, because at that
point nothing is completed, it hasn't even been started.
