So far, resume from suspend-to-RAM (ACPI S3) is broken on all of the
systems I have tested, so it is probably safe to assume it to be
I'm quite confident that this is not something that went in through the
PM tree, because I was running those changes on the systems that turn
out to be broken now.
It looks like the the ACPI waking vector mechanism stopped working, so
I'm suspecting some x86 changes having to do with virtual-to-physical
I've just started bisection.
