Actually, the point I was tryinng to make is that the os implemented
suspend-to-disk doesn't need any knowledge of ACPI or any other
dependancies. VM knowledge, yes. Some inventive design for (re) opening
file handles and other system resources... but the mess that is ACPI doesn't
seem to be needed for this.
