The message is trying to say that that freeze/thaw/restore callbacks will be
used for both PM SUSPEND and PM HIBERNATION. Since, we are only focussing on PM
hibernation, I will remove all wordings of PM suspend from this message to avoid
confusion. I left it there in case someone wants to pick it up in future knowing
framework is already present.

I should remove PM suspend from everywhere since the mode is not tested
for.

Nope, they should be same. We can use dev here too. I should probably just use
dev.

Yes this I left unchanged, it should be consistent with xdev.
