good news. The PMU patches from Johannes Berg [1], which allow to
suspend PMU machines via "echo mem > /sys/power/state", have been
merged and will be in 2.6.25.

Imho we should  prefer this interface now on PMU machines and only
fall back to pm-pmu if it's not existent.
The attached patch tries to do that.

Please review.

Should we set a date now, when pm-pmu will be deprecated and removed
from pm-utils? How long should we keep it around?

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
