That's very likely. Anyway, pure luck is still better than no luck

Right, but the point is that while 2.6 has such an infrastructure, its
introduction actually completely broke UHCI suspend / resume.

Which, again, leads us to conclusion that it was the driver model change
that broke that.

I'm not trying to criticize the driver model itself (I'm sure others have
already done enough), but merely to emphasize that 2.6 is not yet ready for
laptop users.

Enough of that, this is becoming off-topic. :)
