Well, the main thing I care about currently (or did back before
Christmas which is when I sent a patchset to add save/restore
to a pile of ARM devices) is simple save-and-restore for debugging
use. The rest is just that patches don't get through code review
unless they get the vmstate stuff right, and I care about not
being rejected :-)

I think it's still the case that there are devices in
some of the ARM devboards with no save/restore support
at all. I would really prefer it if the default for a
device was "I do not support this" with the things like
USB where somebody has audited them as genuinely needing
no save/restore code explicitly marked as "this is OK";
then we could easily determine what needed fixing and
not offer a broken facility to users.

There are prebuilt images on Aurelien's website for
ARM and others, which is the simplest thing:
