Well, I know swsups a bit and don't know about toi much. Still I think
it's not a problem at all. I learn quickly ;).

I think C is no problem at all, so the kernel. The two I mentioned
above. I think I'll need no or low help from your side regarding the
code site. From what I've read already I would say it's well documented.

Thank you guys. I needed to cope with other things (a suspend
regression, writable /proc/<pid>/limits etc.) which took me a long time,

Then I also went through the last "discussion" around the last merge try
mainly to see what others think about kernel-side implementation of
compression etc.

I hope I'll come up with something early.
