basically the equivalent of the two initcall_debug paths in


which prints a start time and an end time (and a pid) for each init
function; if we have the same for suspend calls (and resume)... we can
make the tool graph it.
Would be nice to get markers for start and end of the whole suspend
sequence as well as for the resume sequence; those make it easier to
know when the end is (so that the axis can be drawn etc)

shouldn't be too hard to implement...
