Why do we need to differentiate between them? The changelog does not
explain how Xen Suspend is different from PM suspend. The difference
could be what is injected into the guest vs what the guest decides to
do. How do we use the new suspend_mode?

Why do the enums range across namespaces -- between NO, XEN and PM?
Can we please be consistent XEN_WATCH_SUSPEND, XEN_PM_SUSPEND. etc?
