Ah, so you are talking about suspend/resume of _the_guest_! This was
actually the bit of information that I was missing. :-)

This was, probbly, partly due to me not being familiar with ARM, and to
the fact that I haven't really looked at the rest of the series

Still, I think it would not hurt for the changelog to be a bit more
explitic and clear.
