How can this be done? The way I understand the code, it tries to make sure 
that after an hibernate, the default kernel in grub is the one used to 
hibernate and not another kernel that happens to be the default kernel in 
grub. Anything in an initrd sounds to me to be too late. Or is it possible to 
switch from an initrd to another one and another kernel?

What about the remaining hooks, they afaics work around other bugs, too. E.g. 
unloading a kernel module before suspend indicates always a bug in the module 
and the cpufreq stuff should also be handled directly by the kernel. I also 
cannot see why 55battery is needed, e.g. on systems that do not have a 
battery or why this is also no workaround. In the end, it seems that only zzz 
is the only needed hook in pm-utils, because it only does suspend/hibernate. 
Maybe someone can explain why 00clear is needed.
