Why was this APM patch not fully applied?

On Tue Apr 04 2000 - 23:19:12 EDT, Stephen Rothwell posted a patch to linux-kernel.
See http://boudicca.tux.org/hypermail/linux-kernel/2000week15/0481.html

To quote:

This patch (against 2.3.99pre4-4) does the following:

        Allow user mode programs to reject standby and suspend operations.

This first item is important to me. Unfortunately, the patch no longer
applies to current kernels (test13-pre4). Was there any reason for it
not to be included, or was it just ignored accidently?

(The patch is still available at http://linuxcare.com.au/apm/ if anyone cares.)
