Thank you for your comments. I have some questions:
In function hibernation_platform_enter(), if function
dpm_suspend_start/end returns error, it goes to resume devices flow.
After the system restores the devices, the system shuts down.  Is this
expected design behivour?  If it is, would you help to give the design
reasons in short ? From my point of view, since the deivces are
resumed, why dose the system go to shut down state ? And also, after
the system shuts down , and when the system is waked up by power key,
the devices will be resumed again when restoring the saved system's
image.
