Something like that.
We already do that to some extent, but kind of with the assumption
that it will not grow too much in s2idle_loop(), but it may actually
grow too much in there, so we need to compensate for that to make the
s2idle behavior reflect the suspend-to-RAM one.
I have a patch for that, will post it shortly.
