    SysRq-U remounts the disks readonly. Why not make the disks readonly
    once the kernel state is in swap, why not let any program run and give
    an error to writes?

    I know, long dead thread, but I too would like to tell the UPS to turn
    off once the system state is resting safely in swap. Currently my
    modified apcupsd scripts tell the UPS to turn off, then tells the
    kernel to hibernate, and hopes the kernel finishes in time. I would
    much rather do things the other way, but `echo disk > /sys/power/disk`
    doesn't return until power is back on if everything goes well.
