Hmmm.  And it looks like I've got revision A5 too. :-)  I was  basing
what I said off something I had read on the Openmoko wiki, which seems
to have been incorrect.

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
Hardware    : GTA02
Revision    : 24420350

So you're already using the AUX light to let you know when a call or SMS
was missed?  Is this only while the phone is charging and/or not
supended?  How did you get that working?

And as someone else pointed out, illuminating the power LED instead of
the AUX might be a nice idea if the power consumption flaw only exists
for the AUX LED on revision A5.
