    Yes, I'd like to get rid of "too many continuous pages" problem
    before. Small problem is that it needs to update x86-64 too, but I
    guess that's okay. I'd like that version to go in *before* that
    page-cache stuff (it actually fails a lot in wild).

    Could you possibly put page-cache stuff into separate file? It would
    be even nicer to have it configurable (run-time or compile-time) so
    that if swsusp fails, I can tell people "try again with page-cache
    stuff turned off"...
    People were complaining that M$ turns users into beta-testers...
