Subject: Why is suspend with s2idle available on POWER8 systems?

Dear Linux folks,


Updating an IBM S822LC from Ubuntu 18.10 to 19.04 some user space stuff 
seems to have changed, so that going into sleep/suspend is enabled.

That raises two questions.

1.  Is suspend actually supported on a POWER8 processor?

Should the Kconfig symbol `SUSPEND` be selectable? If yes, should their 
be some detection during runtime?

2.  If it is supported, what are the ways to getting it to resume? What 
would the IPMI command be?

For now I disabled the automatic suspend, masking the targets [1].


Kind regards,

Paul
