Somebody in the thread at some point said:

What branch is that?

| the device back.  No audio (or too low to hear in my automobile).

If your tree is not recent, "no audio" can be due to changes in the
audio driver, new mixer controls appeared in the last few weeks.  I saw
errors on alsactl restore from the mismatch and was able to get stuff
working by meddling with alsamixer and then alsactl store.

| So for the moment anyone who wishes to test a kernel that seems to
| behave better on the gta01 wrt suspend/resume can't get it from the
| normal places; instead fetch the kernel from http://moko.mwester.net/ .

In the longer run if GTA01 is going to keep working without excessive
pain the answer is either for GTA01 folk to run their own tree (eg, an
"mwester" branch) cherrypicking and testing new patches in parallel, or
for a more regular tracking of the stable tree in git and reporting
breakage pretty close to when we broke it.  After we fix whatever these
issues are.
