Ah ok, i see. Well, platforms that use write_msi_msg() shouldn't need
anything special right ? So only pSeries is an issue here....

PowerBooks don't indeed have MSI support, though G5's do and some people
have been toying around with suspend/resume on them (hibernation only at
that stage) but it doesn't matter at this stage. We are specifically
talking about pSeries which is the "special" case here.
