Hmm, what do you mean ?

As long as not clearing the interrupt doesn't cause other mischief,
it doesn't sound too useful to gather that data in the boot loader
if the boot loader isn't going to act on it anyway. Just make sure
it's not completely lost and let the kernel take care of it.

The boot loader of course needs a special path for resume, but this
is yet another separate issue :-)

Separate issue, independent from the kboot work ;-)
