Software Suspend 2 is a patch against kernels 2.4 or 2.6, that adds
features to the swsusp code present in the legacy 2.6 kernel only.
See http://www.suspend2.net/features

Patrick should explain what versions he uses (kernel, kernel parameters,
hibernate script, etc.)
I personnally experimented with swsusp from the 2.6 branch on an old
laptop (Vaio, broken ACPI), and it began to work a bit reliably with
kernel 2.6.10.
