Urgs :/ Are there more recommended unofficial patches?

As I have also the atapi patches installed, I had to split your patch
for three files (wdlink.h, wdc.c and wd.c), but the related points have
not changed so I was able to apply it.

But unfortunatly the new kernel does not show any change (nothing
better, nothing worse.

I still get the trashed resume file, but I noticed one more curriosity:
Normaly I removed the trashed file and copyed a backupversion. This time
I only moved the file to resume.corrupt. Now after a reboot - this file
was ok?! So something really strange is going on.

So thanx for the quick answer, maybe anyone else has an idea on how to
track this down?
