Never, you are hereby consigned to always have a broken swsusp
implementation on your machines.

There, feel better? Or perhaps you could join in and help with the
current effort to make things better...

Ok, so you are happy with what we currently have in the kernel tree
today? Great, use that, I know it works for me and I'm happy with it...

Please, everyone realize that Nigel's code is not going to be merged
into mainline as it is today. He knows it, and everyone else involved
knows it. Nigel also knows the proper procedure for getting his changes
into mainline, if he so desires, as we all sat in a room last July and
discussed this ( has a summary somewhere about it too...)

So, here's Pavel trying to make things better and people are complaining
about it. Argue that the technical points are invalid (like Dave did.)
But don't just sit around and kvetch, that doesn't help out anyone.
