actually i considered resumedelay before i sent this resumewait patch.
now resumedelay is not an indispensable feature to my application and
most other systems since they are able to wait for the swap devices
ready by resumewait.
but of course we can have the resumedelay param as well just like
rootdelay. since Rafael has applied this resumedelay patch, i can
treat resumedelay as one new seperate patch.
