Tested, makes no difference.

I checked without X before, but forgot to unload the nvidia module, that
apparently makes a big difference, I did some numbers with
scripts/show_delta -b "Back to C".

Nvidia and X : 32 seconds
No X (same result as booting with init=/bin/bash) : 8.3 seconds
Git kernel : 8.2 seconds
Light kernel (no sound, network card and usb drivers) : 8.17 seconds
ATI card instead of nvidia : 8.22 seconds

I think we found the problem, I already replaced nvidia hardware in one
computer to resolve another issue. Really appreciate your help on this
issue, this resume time works pretty well for me, it was a bit
ridiculous when I could boot faster than resume.

Is 8 seconds fairly expected? My other computer (same ati card) boots
in about 2 seconds, but there's a lot less hardware in it (6 hd's and a
ton of usb devices in one computer, 1 hd and 1 usb device in the other).
I checked cold booting with and without usb devices, my light kernel
boots to /bin/bash in 2.5 seconds, normal kernel about 7-8. But I dont
see anything about usb on resume.

Thanks a lot, Anders
