which is a modification of my initial patch posted to debian-powerpc
(for 2.6.5, http://lists.debian.org/debian-powerpc/2004/04/msg00116.html)
to support 2.6.7, fix bugs in signal handling and preempt the forever
boring config issue (people selecting both SUSPEND and PM_DISK options).
I've inspected the patch to make sure it's just that.

The pmdisk suspend functionality is sufficiently arcane to trigger that it
won't happen accidentially. Hence, it won't cause any harm to have it
compiled in. IMHO.

No idea, I don't use it. They will use the same generic script interface
as pmud does, in the end.
