What are the other values?  Have you tried one of them?

The problem is very local: one specific driver (pciide, which is used to attach 
the bus to the PCI bus, doesn't support suspsend/resume.  If you use a 
different disk interface, it may select a different driver.

Beyond that -- someone who knows that driver would have to add power management 
support.  It's probably just a matter of saving and restoring a few registers, 
but past that I don't know; I've never looked at that driver and have no 
knowledge of the device.

The only other thing to do is to try a -current kernel, but I don't even know 
if anyone has been working on it.
