Unfortunately, I'm not seeing such improvement. The main determinant
for me seems to be how many other access points are in the area.

I'm not seeing that; I am seeing
auich0: resume without suspend.
Worse yet, the maximum volume now seems to be too low. I've long had
mixerctl -w outputs.master=255,255
in my /etc/rc.local (and, for that matter, in /etc/apm/resume, but
that's a separate issue). Now, though, it doesn't work:
# mixerctl -w outputs.master=255,255
outputs.master: 127,127 -> 255,255
# mixerctl -a
I was going to post on this as soon as I had a chance to reboot and try
a few experiments, such as a kernel from a month ago. (Right now, I'm
running a March 11 build.)
