[libvirt] [ PATCH v5 0/4] API to invoke S3/S4 on a host and also resume from within libvirt



This patchset adds a new API to put a host to a suspended state
(Suspend-to-RAM, Suspend-to-Disk or Hybrid-Suspend) and setup a timed resume
to get the host back online, from within libvirt.
This uses the RTC wakeup mechanism to set up a timer alarm before suspending
the host, so that in-band resume is facilitated by the firing of the RTC
alarm, which wakes up the host.

This patch applies on top of the Hybrid-Suspend patch posted in [1].

v5:
   * Added MIN_TIME_REQ_FOR_SUSPEND.
   * Incorporated the review comments in [3].

v4:
   * Applies on top of the Hybrid-Suspend patch posted in [1].
   * Incorporated the review comments in [2].

v3:
   * Rebased to libvirt 0.9.7
   * Added a check to see if alarmTime (suspend duration) is within an
     acceptable range.

v2:
   * Added an init function which finds out if S3/S4 is supported by the host,
     upon the first request to suspend/hibernate.
   * Added synchronization/locking to ensure that only one suspend operation
     is active at a time.
