        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
noticed this?
