People who want to use acpi_sleep= kernel parameter can still do that - but
not in combination with pm-utils (or s2ram for the matter, since it also
clears the flag since quite some time).

Which is a good idea IMVHO, the bug reports I have got have shown this to be a
quite sensible approach.

And yes, hopefully this will all be soon over when the kernel does all the
video resume (and then we can push the bugs to the kernel developers ;)
