Resume in kernel side can complete in a couple of seconds, another
second to get audio up.  (What the delay is to get the wake signal from
the GSM module compared to when the call was placed, and the delay in
userspace side after we are up I dunno nor can I do much about it).

I agree it doesn't sound like sticking pictures up (in kernel???) does
anything useful.

The problem with kernel part of resume is just simply stability, it is
very much on my mind and indeed on my desk right now.
