So remember guys. Windows suspend/resume may work just fine. Mac
too. But Linux's suspend/resume isn't a buggy pile of crap. It's an
intelligent buggy pile of crap, that just wants to be loved.
My initial impression was also that power savings was Android's
single supreme goal, but a careful reading of this thread and the
ones preceding it taught me otherwise. Please see below for my
current understanding of what they are trying to accomplish.

When a user says, "Show the changes to the lower file system in my
overlaid file system," they are actually saying, "Replace
everything in /bin, but not /etc/hostname, and merge the lower
package database with the upper package database, and update
/etc/resolv.conf, unless it's the mailserver..."

Actually, it's not that complicated:
1) base and suffices choose the possible types.
2) order of types is always the same: int -> unsigned -> long -> unsigned
long -> long long -> unsigned long long
3) we always choose the first type the value would fit into
4) L in suffix == "at least long"
5) LL in suffix == "at least long long"
6) U in suffix == "unsigned"
7) without U in suffix, base 10 == "signed"
