Severity: wishlist

  Description     : helper scripts for Linux kernel software suspend

Enables the possibilty of suspending machine to disk, physically
turning it off and using up no power. It doesn't need APM nor ACPI. It
creates an image which is saved in an active swap partition selected
by kernel option. By next booting kernel detects the saved image and
restores it. This requires the swsusp kernel patch.

These scripts are not necessary but facilitate life, especially when
the laptop or computer in question isn't 100% working with swsusp.
