No, but i don't think it will ever be used. mjg59 was bang on when he
said that 99% of the time spent suspending is kernel side, and if
anything is going to go *boom* then it will be that.

I asked my g/f (non technical user) what she thought of notifying the
user on failure.

She said "if suspend doesn't work then I won't ever use it" -- implying
that if the suspend fails and pops up a message, then we've failed. You
tell my g/f "too little swap space" or "nv.ko failed to unload" she'll
be screaming for the windows xp disks again.
