Yes. That is what I typed.

No. But in my logs I often saw SysRq triggered, even though I didn't
do it any of these times:

log-20080821-104053.txt:SysRq : SysRq : Show State
log-20080821-105541.txt:SysRq : Emergency Sync
log-20080821-105541.txt:SysRq : Emergency Sync
log-20080821-105541.txt:SysRq : Power Off
log-20080821-110514.txt:SysRq : Terminate All Tasks
log-20080821-111650.txt:SysRq : HELP : loglevel0-8 <6>serial 00:0d: activated
log-20080821-111650.txt:SysRq : Power Off
log-20080821-111650.txt:SysRq : Terminate All Tasks
log-20080821-111650.txt:SysRq : SysRq : <6>serial 00:0d: activated
log-20080821-120628.txt:SysRq : SysRq : HELP : HELP : <6>serial 00:0d: activated
log-20080821-120628.txt:SysRq : SysRq : HELP : HELP : <6>serial 00:0d: activated

(And it seems to pick a random letter too. It even showed the "HELP:"
line at one point!)

I have no idea why this happens. Is it possible to trigger SysRq by
writing data on the other end of the serial console? (Maybe my cable
is bad or something, but data seems to be going in both directions
over my serial console.)

The rest I will not comment on. It also seems unlikely that I will be
able to test any patches reliably, simply because I see a few
different kinds of issues on resume :-(
