There's a semi useable workaround for this (which by the way has been an
ongoing problem since the middle of last year). If you go into
/etc/power/powerctl and comment out all the hdparm lines in the 3400
section, then instead of getting the "lost interrupt" the worst that
happens is that about 1 time in 4 when you wake the machine it will hang
for about 10 minutes before returning control. I was able to limp along
that way on my PB3400 until its recent retirement (last night ;)
