Jan  2 21:38:18 topijna kernel: pm-notify: suspend prepare
Jan  2 21:39:05 topijna kernel: pm-notify: suspend prepare

Jan  2 21:51:31 topijna kernel: pm-notify: suspend prepare
Jan  2 21:53:59 topijna kernel: pm-notify: hibernation prepare

$ hexdump /dev/test
0000000 0033 0000 0033 0000 0033 0000 0033 0000
*
31424480 0033 0000 0033 0000 0031 0000 0031 0000
31424490 0031 0000 0031 0000 0031 0000 0031 0000
