Subjectswsusp again [was Re: Switching Kernels without Rebooting?]

Suspend-to-disk, change hardware, restore-from-disk, load neccessary
modules seems quite easy to do with swsusp. It is very different from
suspend-to-disk, change kernel, restore-from-disk (which is guaranteed
to kill you if kernel changes size).
