I see someone changed the requirements for platform_device too ... :)

This patch is mostly NOPs, but many of them tromp on other patches I have
in the works. So I'd rather hold off for now, using the rest of the
2.6.12-rc series for only real honest-to-gosh bugfixes. (Isn't that
supposed to be the current goal, in any case?)

Something that's not exactly a NOP:

The comment is exactly right, and matches the code. Has done so for
most of a year now, in fact.

What's wrong is the way that the pm_message_t changes have discarded
functionality ... including, as a specific example, the ability for
drivers to do the right thing based on what kind of suspend state
they're entering. (Because pm_message_t is effectively a boolean,
rather than a something that's multi-valued.)

I'll repeat myself again, at the risk of being redundant: we need
to actually fix this pm_message_t thing to _work_ rather than paper
over its botches by discarding functionality.
