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.)
