Please note, I'm not part of the release team. Over the lifetime of bionic userspace it will be used on newer kernels, or those that backport this particular feature.
Despite this being a "new" interface, I see this as actually a minor bug and deficiency of Linux platform, given that other operating systems support swapfile hybernation just fine. Thus it's merely a bug fix. However, the value of knowing that "bionic GA and above" are fixed would be really nice. As far as I can tell, the linux kernel patch is in proposed already, and userspace should follow too. I'll look into cherrypicking that into systemd. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to systemd in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1760106 Title: FFe: Enable configuring resume offset via sysfs Status in klibc package in Ubuntu: New Status in linux package in Ubuntu: Fix Committed Status in systemd package in Ubuntu: New Status in klibc source package in Bionic: New Status in linux source package in Bionic: Fix Committed Status in systemd source package in Bionic: New Bug description: In 4.17 a new attribute is introduced to configure the hibernation resume offset. Since Ubuntu enables a swapfile by default this attribute is important to be able to make hibernation work "out of the box".
