Checking ACPI_FADT_LOW_POWER_S0 is questionable in the majority of
cases, because if S3 is not supported, that flag is in fact
irrelevant, because Linux will allow suspend-to-idle to be used in
that case regardless of it.

I need to look at the individual pieces of code that check
ACPI_FADT_LOW_POWER_S0.
