BTW regarding all those machine quirks to make suspend "simply work":

- is there any coordination with the people behind s2ram?

- for the video related quirks: are you differentiating if the systems
where those quirks got tested run
 -- vesa framebuffer
 -- chip-specific framebuffer driver
 -- plain vga (vga=0)
 on the console and
 -- free X drivers
 -- proprietary display drivers
 in X? Especially using plain VGA or framebuffer seems to influence the
options that are needed to bring the video device back to work a lot in
my experience.
  Side note: Ubuntu and Suse both use framebuffer, Fedora a plain text
console normally; so a quirk that works on Fedora maybe doesn't help on
Suse (or the other way around).

Just wondering. I like the idea to make suspend "simply work" a lot ;-)
