Yes, I have used stable-tracking 80f4b57fef now for 15 days and resume
works as long as I have use "sleep 4; apm -s; sleep 4" to suspend
(there is some race somewhere but this avoids it).

Here I lose about 3.6 percentage units per hour. If the units are
linear that means 100/3.6 = 28 hours of suspend time. This is enough
for me since I can charge the phone over night.

I also bought external USB battery for $14 from which I use when I am
away from home for more than one day.
