I suggest looking for a sequence of patches that would be made to the tree, that would ultimately result in the code looking exactly as you want.
For example, first try to submit patches that provide the front-end that you want, but that works on swsup. Second, ensure the drivers are up to snuff. Finally, now that the differences between the in-tree code and your ideal are small, provide patches that finish the job.
The key here is that you ensure every patch is desirable to the kernel maintainers even if they're not committed to making suspend2 be tge standard. Just a thought. I'm not a kernel maintainer, but I do believe this general approach works well in the research field.
