If you're that worried about speed though (and you don't seem to be) or
just want to skip crappy firmware, you could try to kexec, since you'll
probably disagree with the reference implementation build system at
least. But I suppose that that's a very low priority now, right?

They're not comparable when you've got quite a bit of work going on.
There are likely enough “edge cases” to that thinking. And besides, how
hard is it to just echo mem to /sys/power/state? Who said suckless use
cases need userspace support? I'd leave that in the kernel at least,
because it's not an unlikely use case, though I already build my own
kernels with lots of the junk stripped anyway…

If all I want to do is flip my laptop closed to go from the kitchen to
the bedroom…
