I believe suspend2-sources are the tree that the suspend2 author is
releasing, so it's from outside Gentoo.  However, as with all portage tree
kernels save for vanilla- and now git-sources (which has just been added,
as a daily updated release of the nightly snapshot of Linus' git tree, for
to encourage more direct testing -- bugs to be filed upstream on the
mainline kernel bug tracker, *NOT* on bugs.gentoo, for report turnaround
speed in testing the nightly snapshots), the suspend2-sources include the
standard set of Gentoo patches, I believe.

One can of course take a look at the ebuild, and trace thru the inherited
eclasses if necessary, to see what sources it uses and how.  Or just run
emerge --fetchonly to see what it downloads to $distdir, and/or just
complete the ebuild and watch the output to see what it does and what it
merges.  (Kernel ebuilds don't actually compile the kernel, just install
the sources, to allow user or genkernel configuration and compilation as
desired.)
