Just wanted to say I've tested the patch on a vanilla 2.6.9
kernel running on a 2004 ibook G4 1Ghz. 

Everything works nicely, on AC power I can close the lid and
the machine sleeps, this is with a USB mouse and ethernet
cable plugged in. When I open the lid the machine wakes up
and everything seems to work fine, including the mouse :) I
get the same results using the battery.

I've tested long periods of sleep, about eight hours at a
time and the machine wakes up with no problems.

The only kernel panic I got was when I unplugged the mouse
during sleep. The machine paniced when it work up but I
expected this behaviour.

I'm gonna go give it a go with the debian 2.6.9 source.

Thanks for all the hard work, it's nice to have a sleeping
ppc machine.
