[semi-]reliable suspend/resume on C1/C2 requires new as-yet-unreleased
EC code.  i've not yet had a B1 work well.

also, as you've found, rtcalarm-based resume should be okay, but i
don't think anything else will wake the system reliably.

yes, a kernel issue was causing most wakeups to be ascribed to
"keypress".  should be fixed in the next build.
