Does this really happen in real usage scenarios? I have not seen it happen.
Well, apart from the bug when libx86 crashed on 2.6.25, but that is a plain
bug and i fixed it.

So for the "Some application we need during suspend is buggy and crashes"
case, i'd prefer to just fix the application.

I am really after a implementation that is as simple and easy to understand as
possible - once you start pushing out hooks into packages, people that are
less experienced than you and me will start writing hooks. And the simpler the
interface, the better ;-)
