It does more than that ... it _adds_ swsusp to ppc ! swsusp wasn't in
mainline at all for ppc because I consider it not ready. And even the
asm change should go through me anyway since i wrote that code and I'm
not sure they know all the possible "issues" with that code.

I'll decide later today. I may well keep it and do the cleanup I had in
mind on top of this, which means merging the pmac suspend-to-ram with
the common infrastructure. But that will need some changes & hooks to
the core swsusp.
