Not quite right.  Our policy when fixing old APIs that forgot a flags
argument is that the new API with flags 0 must be identical to the old
API.  Which means you need:

VIR_DOMAIN_SUSPEND_SLEEP = 1<<0, /* Suspend to RAM, power stays on */
VIR_DOMAIN_SUSPEND_HIBERNATE = 1<<1, /* Suspend to disk, power off */

and you might as well make things convenient:

VIR_DOMAIN_SUSPEND_HYBRID = 3, /* Suspend to disk but leave power on */

Then, you should also provide a stub virDomainSuspendFlags for all other
hypervisors that only takes flags == 0, forwarding the old
virDomainSuspend to the new callback name.
