 This bug is quite cosmetic but something that might be useful to fix.
 Maybe generating one spurious call to stylus_updown() could work?
 Steps to reproduce:
 1) type "apm -s" in xterm or similar
 2) press enter down on a virtual keyboard
 3) wait for the phone to suspend and release enter after that
 4) resume the phone

 Expected results:
 4) applications receive touchscreen release event so that they notice that
 user is no longer pressing touchscreen.

 Actual results:
 4) applications do not receive touchscreen release event on resume and
 think that the user is still holding the enter key on the virtual
