All are potentially affected as they all have nominally the same capacitor 
value. Not all of them actually suffer from it though, probably due to 
component variation. Dieter found that on his he could start the problem by 
heating the chip by a few degrees, and stop it by letting it cool. Depending 
on how lucky you are you may have #1024 always, never, or only when the 
phone's in your pocket.

There are two sources of extra current draw: recamping and not being in deep 
sleep mode. Recamping is the symptom of #1024 so is only an issue on phones 
suffering from it. Deep sleep mode is a config option in /etc/frameworkd.conf 
so if you don't suffer from #1024 you can always use deep sleep mode.
