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
way.

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
state).

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
selected).


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
patches.
