NetBSD does support ACPI S4bios where available.

Please clarify.  Are you saying that if the BIOS can do suspend-to-disk
via S4, we support it?  That makes sense; indeed, I had older Thinkpads
where suspend-to-disk was entirely done by the BIOS, with little or no
OS APM support.  I thought, though, that on newer Thinkpads the OS had
to do the bulk of the work.  That is what I was questioning here.

Saying that NetBSD doesn't support suspend-to-disk at all is not true; it is supported in the cases where the firmware assists (either using APM hibernate or ACPI S4bios). Plain S4 is not supported.
