Yes, persistence (ie. application and kernel state checkpointing and
rollback operations) is, in my opinion, one of the coolest things since
sliced bread.  ;-)  Linux 2.6 actually has so-called "software suspend"
which is exactly that.

There is a whole lot of interesting paper on that topic, among which a
very famous paper about L3 by Jochen Liedtke [1], a more recent one
about how this could be implemented in user-space on top of L4 [2], and
papers about the implementation of persistence in KeyKOS and EROS [3].
