    Very old myth. In fact just about every scheduler on the planet exploits
    the fact this is untrue.

    save state
    continue running doing scheduler stuff
    restore other state losing the state in the middle we dont need

    Ditto with a lot of I/O devices. My audio save state and suspend can be
    seperated - I might play a little bit of a song twice but is that a bug
    ?
