I usually use it with Fujitsu LOOX S60C.

Although the number of machines having S4BIOS support probably
decreases (because Windows doesn't use it - instead, it seems to use
non-BIOS S4 suspend), a little old laptops have it, and it is rather
useful on such machines.

I don't think that we should support S4BIOS actively since it is
on the way out, but I guess we may leave the codes to drive it for
the moment.

Anyway, we need support for non-BIOS save-to-disk suspend.
Perhaps it is a good item for the next Google SoC.
