PM / hibernate: introduce "nohibernate" boot parameter
To support using kernel features that are not compatible with hibernation, this creates the "nohibernate" kernel boot parameter to disable both hibernation and resume. This allows hibernation support to be a boot-time choice instead of only a compile-time choice. Signed-off-by: Kees Cook <> Acked-by: Pavel Machek <> Signed-off-by: Rafael J. Wysocki <>
