SubjectNew swsusp patch + Q: how to free memory?
Hi!

Here's new swsusp patch. It no longer adds signals (breaking ABI), and
it now should work okay with journaling filesystems. Hardware state
restore is (mostly) not done -- that's task for someone else, like
ACPI.

Last big remaining problem is "how to free memory". What's currently
in swsusp patch just does no work. Any advice wanted. Don't try with
hard real-time tasks. (Funny question: should suspend be supported
with such beasts around? ;-). Oh and we have some by-design problems
with network. Maybe some packets will be sent twice.

I wanted to free memory by eat_memory() followed by free_memory(), but
that's big no-no from context swsusp is using.
