s2ram is more than just a whitelist. It's an advanced version of
vbetools. It also incorporates the functionality of pm-pmu and
radeontool in one single binary (it replaces them so to speak)
If you want to use more advanced stuff like s2both (hybrid-suspend
support), you need the s2ram functionality anyway.
I CCed Stefan. He can give probably give us more details on this and
probably tell us how he would like to see uswsusp
(s2ram/s2disk/s2both) integrated into pm-utils.
