Re: TEST: Sleep patch #4

first thank you for this nice work. Mostly it works great for me on my
iBook G4 933 (first generation).

I have still some problems with #4.
When i unplug or plug in an USB-Mouse while in sleep the iBook crashes on resume. The sleep-led turns off, but the display remains dark and i can't ping the iBook (with #2 one time after resume the display remained blank too, but the sound (xmms and dmasound_pmac) started again and i was able to ping the iBook over the net).

An other problem is that the kernel hangs sometimes on boot. With patch #2 and agpgart compiled into the kernel, it locked up every time after the agpgart messages. Without agpgart or agpgart compiled as module, i can boot without problems most times. Loading agpgart as module (hotplug loads it) make no problems. Btw. what is agpgart needed for? I have not tested #4 with agpgart compiled into kernel.

Some times (with patch #2 more often as with #4) the kernel hangs somewhere after the ati messages (i will write down the exact message down when i see it the next time). I had this two times with vanilla 2.6.9 too, but with the suspend patch it happens quiet more frequent.

One thing i noticed in this context (with vanilla 2.6.9 and and with the sleep patches too) is an messages "radeonfb (...): Invalid ROM signature 0 should be0xaa55". (The space between the "be" and "0xaa55" is really missing!)

An other point where it hangs sometimes is just after the kernel message "Macintosh non-volatile memory driver v1.1". One time i was only able to start Linux again after booting MacOS.

If you need some more information, i would be happy to give them to you.

Best Regards,
