Hot-swap?  Or Hibernate and swap?  I thought there was already code for
turning off a bunch of drivers when going in to hibernate, and then
re-initializing when coming out. (Not that I know where that is).

On the other hand, hibernate would need to write the CPU-card state to
storage available on the CPU-card.  If you're using the SATA connection,
you can't use a swap file or partition on the external drive.

And a reminder that we talked before about not putting the entire
device-tree in the EEPROM.  You've got a couple, variable devices on the
other side of the CPU-card too, so the EEPROM only holds a branch of the
device tree.
