I'm not sure what 'non-bugs' in the firmware we're talking about, but I
problem I had when trying to do something like testing S3
suspend/resume in osstest, was that most server class hardware I could
find, did not support that.

If that's the bug you're talking about, yes, I agree it's not trivial.
:-) (although, I did not actually check the boxes in the MA colo, they
were just servers from Citrix's lab).

There's a (non-perfect) workaround, though, as George suggests, which
would allow us to run a "quasi-suspend" test at every flight on every
