Yes, I just did some testing. The phone had been on for about 12 hours maybe
and had gone through multiple suspend-wakeup cycles. TTFF was around 10
minutes. Then I switched off the phone and switched it back on, after that
TTFF was about 40 seconds.
Now that I came back indoors, the phone still has a fix and with older kernels
it could not keep the fix if I went indoors. So it seems the software fix
isn't perfect yet (it can't "recover" from suspend or something), but if you
always "start fresh", it does work well.
