Our live filesystems are built in a chroot, and don't contain a
pre-made resume file, so the preinst's "am I in a chroot" logic works.

Cheers, these look nice. That will avoid the pointless 5 s waiting
during boot. The only issue now is that you can't choose to entirely
disable hibernation by creating an empty file or having no file at
all; not sure how much of an issue that is. Perhaps if the file exists
and is empty that shold indicate "disable resume", and if the file
doesn't exist, "automatic resume"?
