There's the rub -- this requires a number of changes in different
areas. What I really need at this point is a verdict on patch #1. If
that looks OK, then that should probably go in via the one of the
linux-pm trees. Then patch #2 can probably go in via your tree and 3
and 4 can go in via Trond's.

However, none of this should go in unless #1 is ok. Make sense?
