    You broke the design. S3 support was developed long before swsusp was in
    the kernel, and completely indpendent of it. It should have remained that

    S3 support is a subset of what is need for S4 support.

    swsusp is an implementation of S4 support. In theory, there could be
    multiple implementations that all use the same core (saving/restoring

    There could also be different power management schemes that use swsusp as
    an implementation for suspend-to-disk. But, that's another tangent.

    CONFIG_ACPI_SLEEP should give you S3 support, and the ACPI side of S4
    support. The comment in the config option should tell the user that they
    must choose a suspend implementation (e.g. CONFIG_SUSPEND, which should
    prolly be CONFIG_SWAP_SUSPEND) in order to get complete S4 support. (The
    ACPI side can make an empty call to swsusp if no implementation is

    Some time ago, I made a BK repo for suspend support. I axed it, since no
    one ever used it. But, it's back again, and I'll be integrating your
    patches and try to dedicate a few extra cycles to resolving some of the
    issues. I'll send an announcement to the list once I've integrated your
