Thanks, too. I did notice one small problem that seems to be
new in this kernel. The TiPB display doesn't shut off completely
while sleeping. I guess one way to describe it is that it behaves as
if the screen is not blank. The backlight is off so it's only
noticeable eg. when there's a bright window on a dark desktop.
Eventually, after sleeping for some time (hours), the screen sort of
"decays" to a bunch of random vertical stripes. What's a little
disconcerting is that there's a faint trace of the vertical stripes
that remain after coming back from sleep. This is only noticeable
when showing something like a solid grey50 background. Fortunately,
this goes away after the display is shut off for ~20 minutes either by
powering down or by sleeping with an older kernel.
Sorry for the non-technical description, but has anyone else
