I couldn't get 'bug' to work when reporting against the kernel. I talked
with Martin Pitt about this, and there are a few options open to us,
just not in time for the alpha. The options we discussed are:

1. Tag it as a bug (apport-bug) against the pm-utils package

2. Create a new class of things to be reported by apport, just for
suspend/resume bugs.

Another problem with using kerneloops is that apport presents the user
with a message that says something like "you have experiences a kernel
crash", which is not really accurate.

Implementing (1) above is relatively easy, implementing (2) would allow
us to customize apport so that the user message is specific to
suspend/resume.

Martin is on holiday this week, he should be involved in any decisions
about this. This alpha release was a prototype, and we can improve it.
