[LinuxBIOS] Crazy idea? LinuxBios+Suspend 2

Like always I am looking for a faster boot time.  So an idea came to
me.  My current "speed system" loads Linuxbios. Then the 2.6.18 kernel,
until it reaches the suspend2 code (www.suspend2.net).  At that point it
resumes from the suspend file, hiding out in swap space.  How hard would
it be to build in a "suspend to disk" function into linuxbios?  I could
see a great use for this in laptops running linuxbios, like the OLPC
Just an idea.
