Side note: I do not believe a lot of people actually run linux-next on
laptops, so suspend/resume likely doesn't get a lot of testing in

I think most people who run linux-next tend to be automation things on farms.

Don't get me wrong - I love linux-next and your tip testing, but I
think linux-next is best for finding build errors etc big integration
issues, with some very rudimentary actual boot checking.

Maybe I'm wrong.

I _wish_ I am wrong.

But honestly, I see problems on my machines most merge windows. Last
release was actually unusually calm, in that I don't think I had to
bisect anything at all.

Which really says to me: "very few people actually _run_ those next trees".
