I doubt it: we have system_wakeup since 1.1, and we've even backported
it to RHEL-6.

But even if there *was* a relevant scenario involving a QEMU that
doesn't provide system_wakeup, that QEMU will also not provide member
wakeup-suspend-support, let alone tell us wakeup-suspend-support: true,
unless somebody set out to break things on purpose.  That somebody would
get to keep the pieces then.
