Well, I saw FC6 kernels patched with suspend2 (for example  
http://mhensler.de/swsusp/).  RHEL5beta2 is based on FC6 kernel, so I  
guess there's hope.  I've attempted to apply original patch directly  
to FC6 kernel sources.  However it seems it needs some cleanup  
(apperently parts but not all of suspend2 patches are already included  
in FC6, seems to be mostly documentation bits, but no actual code).  I  
just wiped my RHEL5beta2 box, but if I install a new one I might try  
to merge changes from http://mhensler.de/swsusp/ into it.

Seems that suspend2 project is sponsored by Red Hat.  Who knows, maybe  
we'll see it implemented by Red Hat too in near future.
