''I saw a big fat mdelay(2000) in the suspend path in
drivers/ar6000/miscdrv/common_drv.c''  :-)

Don't forget now we have a history, we can rewind behind it, fork, then
reapply the subsequent patches.  But I am hoping the various things
changing will get to where they are going shortly.

I don't think we have that problem, but I'm glad everyone is having a
good time today talking through their hopes and fears.

The only "switch" that matters to us I think is the default kernel in
our homegrown rootfses, I talked to John Lee earlier and we will do this
to the testing repo on this Friday.  That will get the ball rolling on
our side anyway.  Before then, if we're lucky we get some andy-tracking
kernel packages coming in unstable repo.
