I got TuxOnIce[1] patched[2] and as far as testing the hibernate
step[3] before I gave up after TuxOnIce refused to save the image (it
just rebooted[4] instead).

2. http://dev.laptop.org/git?p=users/mdengler/olpc-2.6;a=shortlog;h=testing
3. Step #6 in
 [unload/unmount stuff]
 echo 1 > /sys/power/tuxonice/keep_image
 echo 1 > /sys/power/tuxonice/freezer_test
 echo 1 > /sys/power/tuxonice/suspend
 [should just create memory image, but just rebooted right away]
