Hi Andy,

In the past, we did see random suspend (S0ix) failures after the
devices were released to users (S0ix failures reasons can be a lot so
was not possible to catch all in lab testing). Rajneesh (@Intel) is
aware of the context. In most of these cases, it was very difficult to
reproduce the issue in developer environment, so really difficult to
arrive at what component was causing those failures without these
logs. So I'd still like to make one last request to allow to these
debugs in the kernel at resume time, to make this feature very useful
(it still doesn't change anything for anyone not enabling the module
parameter). However if you still have a strong opinion against this,
I'll add it as a new debugfs attribute in the new re-spin of the
patch.

Thanks & Best Regards,

Rajat
