Ah, ok... I knew that many of these patches were not causing direct
troubles, but since I found that starting from a particular commit I was
building non working (from the suspend/resume point of view) kernels, I
decided to take this commit as my base and then adding only the patches
(i.e. removing the others) that were more important for the standard usage.

Nice to read... I'll give it a try as soon as I can, and I think it will
be my default kernel as soon as the fixes you mentioned will be there! :)
