Are you serious? The only thing the generic code does here is invoke our
stuff in the right order. That shouldn't be too much of a constraint. We
don't even have multiple CPUs or anything that was recently giving

Of the suspend related bugs Adrian's regression list most aren't really
related to the generic code we rely on, especially since all machines
this code applies to are single-CPU. Besides, relying on it is the only
way to ensure it stays compatible.
