This talk looks at bringing hibernation support to ARM, with a focus on OMAP. The presentation will include a brief technical overview of the swsusp framework (the mainline hibernation framework), followed by an in-depth discussion of implementations on AM33XX and OMAP3. The talk will also touch on topics closely related to hibernation such as snapshot boot, hibernation restore from bootloader, and self-refresh only suspend/off modes.
The presentation is aimed towards embedded developers and hobbyists with an interest in power management. Attendees will gain a greater understanding of swsusp and the technical issues involved in extending support to a new SoC.
