Right, I do not see where in the HAL source code that is determined.  I
can see the quirks in


and follow the invocation chain back to hal/tools/hal-system-power-suspend 
but I cannot see where that tool is invoked from or (more critically)
how the HAL_PROP_POWER_MANAGEMENT_QUIRK family of environment variables
are created from the descriptions in the hal-info quirks files.

Am I missing something obvious in the hal source code?
