I was going to say I have no idea, but looking at it again ... this is
in the *resume* code, not the suspend code as I'd assumed, and on resume
I guess I felt it was safer to not assume it didn't change, since it
could be a slightly different kernel that loaded and restored the
hibernation image? It should be the same one, so I guess it should be
exactly the same code, but I guess I wanted to make sure there wasn't
anything weird there. As for why it'd be 32 MiB? No idea. Although that
really ought to flush all your possible caches anyway, I guess.
