The patch I distribute now does have a few parts to it that could be
separated into distinct patches (cryptoapi LZF support, fuse freezer
support), but the bulk of it is TuxOnIce itself, which just adds new
files and inserts the hooks necessary to share the lowlevel code with
[u]swsusp. I think, therefore, it would akin to adding a new driver or

I don't think I do want to have my own series of patches, because
TuxOnIce doesn't remove or rework swsusp or uswsusp, but sits along side
them. I'm not trying to mutate swsusp into TuxOnIce, because that would
require a complete rework of swsusp from the ground up (TuxOnIce does
everything but the atomic copy/restore and associated prep/cleanup
