yes, we have added suspend/resume test in 0day, including both
functionality and suspend/resume performance. It is not widely run
because most of the 0Day testboxes are servers/desktops, now we've just
added some client laptops as testboxes, and will add more in the near
future. :)

yes.

I will run native suspend/resume test on laptops and other test boxes
that really support it, and run suspend/resume test in pm_test modes on
the others to help us find more issues.
