It's a large body of code that isn't accepted by the upstream kernel 
developers, and we don't have anyone with enough time to work through 
the codebase and audit it ourselves. suspend2 touches a /lot/ of the 
kernel, and risking it interacting badly with one of our other kernel 
changes isn't worth it if all we get in return is some speed.
