That's indeed a feature that would be useful (so s2ram could play well
with tuxonice)

The same is true for s2ram. It doesn't actively query hal. It also
relies on being passed the correct parameters. (as it still has a
builtin whitelist, it can use that as fallback though). That's how
it's currently implemented in Debian pm-utils.
