Is there anyone currently working on the ACPI code? The laptop I've been
using recently doen't support APM at all, and having suspend would be nice.
That being said, I've poked at the code a bit, mainly by cribbing from the
FreeBSD 5 tree, and http://people.su.se/~lha/patches/netbsd/acpi-wakeup-1
It looks like S1 suspend will "Just Work" since the hardware takes care of
everything. Laptop doen't implement that though so I can't test it. :/
S3 suspend needs the acpi-wakeup-1 patch, slightly modified wakeup code,
and lots and lots of new powerhooks. With those changes it half works
The diff contains:
* VBIOS reset on resume
* /dev/apmctl interface glue code. (So I can use apm -d -z to test)
* if_rtk_pci powerhook.
* if_iwi powerhook. (Card still doen't work after resume, but no longer
causes a hard lockup.)
I'm probably going to poke at this till I get it working on my box, something
is missing/busted in the cbb powerhook, and the agp code needs a hook to save
the PCI config space.
