hibernate/suspend oddities on different kernels

I have gotten both suspend-to-ram and hibernate-to-swap working on my HP zv5000 with the 2.6.20 kernel. Previously with the 2.6.17 kernel hibernate was working and suspend was not working. I was using swsusp, not suspend2.

What I found odd, and the reason I am filing this report, is that there was no suspend option in the kernel config for 2.6.20 until I patched it with _suspend2_. Once I patched it I was able to choose software_suspend in the config. Suspend2 was also available, although I did not choose it. Never-the-less, suspend2 seems to load at boot time, but I resume with "resume=" not "resume2=". So which version of software suspend am I really using?

I think "resume=" is software suspend.

In the new Slackware kernel (current, software suspend is onboard. I added a screenshot

out of the config file.

I use it with success and a own script, the resume partition hard coded in the kernel and no "resume=" append in the /etc/lilo.conf.
