IIRC, the good people at Suse came up with a way to do signed
hibernation images. They might be carrying those patches in SLES or
Opensuse. Naturally, they won't be upstream because they depend on
some of the other SB patches which we both carry in our kernels.
Hibernation has never exactly been a priority for us, so we
pursued it further.
It's a bit of a mess. I'm just trying to get a lay of the land, it's
information gathering mode. On the one hand this works reliably on
Windows and OS X (for very different reasons and implementations) so
I'd like to see it work here too, but at the moment my bias is to
relegate it to experts to wade the mine field. And that means in DE's
to hide all hibernation related GUI elements by default, and also by
default to poweroff in low battery situations. And hopefully there's
adequate messaging to apps when poweroff is called so states can be
saved by those apps.
