It's required because you can't just return from the finisher. A normal
return from the finisher will always be interpreted as an abort rather
than success (because the state has to be unwound.)

This is the only way to get a zero return from cpu_suspend().

You need the idmap_pgd in place to call cpu_resume at it's physical
address. Other page tables just won't do here. It's well established
that this page table must be in place for the resume paths to work.

So yes, the comments above the function are wrong. idmap_pgd must be
in place for cpu_resume() to work.

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: 5.8Mbps down 500kbps up. Estimation
in database were 13.1 to 19Mbit for a good line, about 7.5+ for a bad.
Estimate before purchase was "up to 13.2Mbit".
