I think an even better option would be to extend 'perf timechart' to be
suspend/resume aware: add a few tracepoint events and teach 'perf
timechart' to draw them. (We should be able to do perf timechart record
across suspend/resume cycles just fine.)

( Doing that would also improve the tracing facilities within
suspend/resume quite significantly. It wouldnt just be a
single-purpose thing for graphing, but perf trace and perf stat would
work equally well. )

Thanks,

Ingo
