Subject[patch] suspend: update warnings
Update suspend documentation. Warnings were a bit overstated, and did
not point out important stuff.

-From kernel/suspend.c:
+Some warnings, first.

* BIG FAT WARNING *********************************************************
*
- * If you have unsupported (*) devices using DMA...
- * ...say goodbye to your data.
- *
* If you touch anything on disk between suspend and resume...
* ...kiss your data goodbye.
*
- * If your disk driver does not support suspend... (IDE does)
- * ...you'd better find out how to get along
- * without your data.
- *
- * If you change kernel command line between suspend and resume...
- * ...prepare for nasty fsck or worse.
+ * If you do resume from initrd after your filesystems are mounted...
+ * ...bye bye root partition.
+ * [this is actually same case as above]
*
- * If you change your hardware while system is suspended...
- * ...well, it was not good idea.
+ * If you have unsupported (*) devices using DMA, you may have some
+ * problems. If your disk driver does not support suspend... (IDE does),
+ * it may cause some problems, too. If you change kernel command line
+ * between suspend and resume, it may do something wrong. If you change
+ * your hardware while system is suspended... well, it was not good idea;
+ * but it wil probably only crash.
*
* (*) suspend/resume support is needed to make it safe.
