Well, everything worked for somebody at some point. But the answer can't
be to just add another toggle to the control-center so people can
find out if it works for them at this time, choose-your-own-adventure style.
Either we commit to supporting it. Then we need to invest the time to make
it actually work. At the minimum, we need to be able to detect reliably when
it will not work, so we can turn it off.
Or we don't. In which case we should just remove it.
Right, the kernel should
stop advertising "disk" in /sys/power/state unless it
can reliably hibernate. If users want to opt-in to some hibernate tech-preview,
they should have to add something to the kernel command line or so, imo.
The kernel shouldn't be exposing features it can't reliably provide.
Again, as I understand it, it's not even a hardware-supported situation, it can
potentially fail on *any system* if the swap partition is filled up
the wrong way,
if i'm not mistaken.
until, at least that is fixed, we really should stop exposing the
some sort of kernel command line opt-in situation.
