I think this should imply for mainline kernels.

I spent like 5 hours udating QtMoko distro to these new sysfs paths. I
did it also when switching from 2.6.24->2.6.29 and if this is the last
time i had to do this it's not such problem for me.

Please, let's fix suspend/resume and other problems first and then talk
about sysfs paths.
