Bug#653398: linux-2.6: Hang on resume from standby in 3.1., 3.2-rc*
Source: linux-2.6
Version: 3.1.5-1
Tags: upstream,patch
Severity: important

I sent the following report to LKML, but diagnosis/repair upstream
seems to be moving slowly on it. In particular, it might still appear
in the 3.2 release.

Others have seen it too, in Ubuntu [1] and Fedora [2].

The bottom line: please revert
aeed6baa702a285cf03b7dc4182ffc1a7f4e4ed6 in packaged kernels

I just went digging through the history, and it looks like the commit
I found to be problematic partially reverts
7c1e76897492d92b6a1c2d6892494d39ded9680c, from 2008.
