I don't know whats going on now with swsusp under 2.6, last time I
looked in the kernel mailing list there was a lot of shouting about the
changes and where /proc/acpi/sleep went.
However under 2.4 its already working quite nicely.
some people do get some trouble at times, but its quite stable. I
suspend and resume several dozen times without problems, by that time I
usually switch kernel again so ... I just got dri+mach64 to work with so
I am happy. 
The problem is still with suspend to ram which I don't expect to work
any time soon, and is not related to swsusp but to acpi.
