Q: Can I suspend-to-disk using a swap partition under LVM?
-A: No. You can suspend successfully, but you'll not be able to

+A: Yes and No. You can suspend successfully, but the kernel will not be able
+to resume on its own. You need an initramfs that can recognize the resume
+situation, activate the logical volume containing the swap volume (but not

+echo -n "$major:$minor" > /sys/power/resume
+where $major and $minor are the respective major and minor device numbers of
+the swap volume.
