Er, query:

At some point in the vague nebulous future, after initrd has become initramfs,
the partition detection code is scheduled to be ripped out, correct? And
replaced with a userspace thing run out of initrd ala hotplug and udev and
all that?

So at that point, it's not just device mapper that's going to need something
else to run in userspace to attach block devices to partitions. Everything

So are you saying that swsusp is a short-term thing that will be dropped in
2.8 because it can't be made to work? Or that we WILL have to deal with this
at some point, just not yet?
