If the hibernation restore occurred from the BIOS, then one wouldn't need to boot from disk, right?  Also, if you don't need to boot from disk, the BIOS could restore the entire memory state and then re-initialize any peripherals that need it (PCI, PCMCIA, CF, VGA, etc.)  Should be quicker, elegant, and more effective, right?  (and OS independent if done right.)

Question is, how much memory does LinuxBIOS use for itself?  We'd have to make sure that it doesn't "step on its own feet" trying to get the memory state loaded.
