SubjectRe: [linux-pm] [RFC] Add some hooks to generic suspend code

Because there is an existing API, via /dev/apm_bios, and that's all X
understands ! And because I've always done that ;)

We need to define a new mecanism, I think. In the meantime, my APM
emulation works though and I won't drop it.

Maybe. It may help in some cases.
