Hi.

Duncan's reply is right. The two in-kernel versions are being merged first. There are already patches in the -mm tree.

After the dust has settled, I'll push my patches.

Right now I'm preparing the last feature changes to suspend2 before merging: adding support for resuming an initrd and making suspend modular. This will allow encrypted storage of an image (the encryption can be set up from the initrd), and will also allow at least some upgrades to suspend to be done without rebooting the system. The system I'm running right now has LZF, GZIP and swapwriter support compiled as modules. I just need to get the core done.

Regards,

Nigel
