Weren't you going to call this pv suspend? (And also --- is this suspend
or hibernation? Your commit messages and cover letter talk about fixing
hibernation).

Do you ever use this mode? It seems to me all you care about is whether
or not we are doing XEN_SUSPEND. And so perhaps suspend_mode could
become a boolean. And then maybe even drop it altogether because it you
should be able to key off (shutting_down == SHUTDOWN_SUSPEND).

I forgot --- what did we decide about non-x86 (i.e. ARM)?


And PVH dom0.
