[PATCH] ACPI / Sleep: Allow the NVS saving to be skipped during suspend to RAM

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rjw@xxxxxxx>

Commit 2a6b69765ad794389f2fc3e14a0afa1a995221c2
(ACPI: Store NVS state even when entering suspend to RAM) caused the
ACPI suspend code save the NVS area during suspend and restore it
during resume unconditionally, although it is known that some systems
need to use acpi_sleep=s4_nonvs for hibernation to work.  To allow
the affected systems to avoid saving and restoring the NVS area
during suspend to RAM and resume, introduce kernel command line
option acpi_sleep=nonvs and make acpi_sleep=s4_nonvs work as its
alias temporarily (add acpi_sleep=s4_nonvs to the feature removal
file).

Addresses https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16396 .

Hi Len,

As requested, I made a warning message be printed when s4_nonvs is used.

Please apply.

Rafael
