And what a superb job you have done with suspend2! Kudos Nigel!

Here are the facts from my notebook suspend2 actually does work, works
reliably, is fast and pretty, none of which is true for swsusp. From my
user perspective, the refusal to merge suspend2 into mainline etc. is
just contributing to one thing - Linux not having decent suspend/resume
in vanilla tree.

I travel on the train every day and I can confidently say that I'm the
only person there with a Linux based notebook. Everyone else is having
Windows or an occasional Mac. These people *never* have to worry about
suspending and resuming - it just works for them. That's because
Microsoft and Apple decided this was important many, many years ago.

Unless mainline kernel folks decide to give people something that works
and works reliably, this thing will drag on for many more years, I'm
afraid. Ah well, as long as you keep the great job releasing suspend2
for the up-to-date kernels, at least one more Linux notebook will be
able to suspend/resume properly.

Bottom line: With your code, my machine works. Without it, it doesn't.
