After a resume there seems to be a short period (~26-27 seconds)
during which the IDE controller (or disk or whatever) doesn't seem
very responsive.  Specifically files read during that period are
mostly garbage, for instance /etc/apm/resume. If I put a `sleep(30)'
in apmd.c:resume(), those specific problems goes away, but this sounds
like a more serious problem.

This sounds very much like the troubles described in port-i386/4386 -
has anyone looked at that?
