Suspend2 for Dapper?

I would like to see the Suspend2 patches in the Dapper kernel.  I
believe that they are working hard on getting those into the mainstream
kernel, but I don't know when that will be.

The thing is that the Suspend2 works on my laptop, but the one in the
Breezy kernel does not.  Additionally, the 'hibernate' script that is
part of the Suspend2 project does a much nicer job of managing the
hibernate and resume than the 'acpi-support' scripts do.  (I wish that
it just used 'hibernate', since it should support the Breezy suspend
with simple modifications to its configuration file.)

Suspend2 can hibernate to a file, or to a swap partition.  It can
hibernate to encrypted swap or file system also.  It has a user-space
progress display that gives visual feedback about the suspend and resume
cycle.  It can probably be worked into 'usplash' with a little bit of

Please spend at least one day investigating and trying out Suspend2 and
'hibernate' before you "shoot it down".
