Summary: swsusp-for-sysvinit-2.86.diff should die
Product: openSUSE 10.3
Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: werner@xxxxxxxxxx

We patch our sysvinit to support the command "swsusp" additionally to "halt",
"reboot" and "poweroff".

Two reasons:
- it is confusing to users. We really should guide the users to use our suspend
framework that takes care of doing all the important things that need to be
done around suspending.
- it is using the deprecated and mostly untested reboot-syscall method.
Breakage is more or less to be expected.

I did not complain about this until now, because i always thought that this was
implemented upstream, but today i noticed that it is explicitly patched into
our sysvinit package.

I think we should get rid of it.
