In reply to: My words.
Parent article: Software suspend - again
I had given that a brief thought, and it seems pretty worthless to me, IMHO, but then so do diskless workstations most of the time. If you did suspend-to-network on a diskless workstation, you could dump all the filesystem drivers (other than NFS) and disk drivers, trading one code lump for the other. You could probably even pare back most of the networking code if you were real spartan about it. (But you would need a reliable protocol like TCP to ensure it all works.)
I imagine suspend-to-network would be greated with the same enthusiasm as swap-to-network. :-)
