The pmud 0.7 release was designed to restore the trackpad settings on
wakeup (from data pmud stored just before sleep). The restore code was
broken, it's fixed in 0.7-2 which was uploaded to incoming yesterday.

Send patches if you find out how. The public part of the MacOS X source
code might be a place to look for clues (if you happen to find out what
they do to make multiword DMA 2 mode restore properly on all machines, I'm
sure BenH would appreciate a hint). 

The whole time spent for wakeup is in the kernel, reprobing the ADB bus
and restoring the IDE disk state after powering the disk back up. I can't
see how we can speed up the procedure.
