Here's a preliminary patch that actually makes my laptop recover from S3
sleep (first time I've ever seen this happen with NetBSD!).
It doesn't of course ensure that all data is sync'd to disk, but it's a
HUGE improvement over the behaviour I was seeing before. Combined with
my acpi-wakecode patch, I'm actually able to drop to S3 and resume with
my Latitude D600 (still missing some powerhooks for bge and cbb, but
I'll work on that next).
If there aren't any objections, I'd like to commit both the
acpi-sleep-piixide and acpi-wakecode patches to HEAD.
