Subject[PATCH] Allow initrd_load() before software_resume()
This patch adds a boot parameter "resume_initrd".
If present, init will load the initrd before trying to resume.

This makes it posssible to resume from an encrypted suspend image.
The initrd should insmod cryptoloop.o or loop-AES.o and perform
losetup -e so that resume=/dev/loopX makes sense.
Note: software_resume() should not be allowed to complete if
initrd has altered disks (e.g. by flushing journals).

/initrd
|-- bin
| |-- ash
| |-- insmod
| `-- losetup
|-- dev
| |-- console
| |-- hdaX
| |-- loopX
| |-- null
| `-- tty
|-- linuxrc
|-- loop.o
`-- lost+found

Resuming works, but suspension seems to fail more frequently when
the swap is encrypted. I am using loop-AES-v1.7d + patch for 2.6.

Is it safe to suspend to loop devices ?
