[RFC][PATCH 0/6] xtime/wall_to_monotonic cleanups

This is 2.6.36 (or later) material. But I wanted to get the ball rolling. Any feedback/testing would be greatly appreciated! than... 4 Jun 2010 23:33

Proposal for a new algorithm for reading & writing a hibernation image.
Hi again. As I think about this more, I reckon we could run into problems at resume time with reloading the image.
