Hmmm, while line-count isn't a useful metric: this file contains 41% of the code that was
in hibernate.c, but has stripped the substantial copyright-pedigree that the hibernate
code had built up over the years.
(counting lines identified by 'cloc' as code, not comments or blank)

If you are copying or moving a non trivial quantity of code, you need to preserve the
copyright. Something like 'Derived from the arm64 hibernate support which has:'....

I think you need to mention that hibernate and kexec are rewriting memory, and may
overwrite the live page tables, therefore ...
