Real HW may have other ways to notify BIOS that system was S3 suspended
(special chipset register for instance). I think we can write DSDT magic
to write RTC for us, but I prefer to do it from inside QEMU.

RTC is battery backed, but what do you expect will happen to main memory
where all your data resides during S3 in this case anyway?
