    Regresses badly on resume from in-kernel hibernation. I.e. hangs with some
    red graphics artifacts on the tty. The same artifacts appear for a short
    time with rc6 + some commits as well, but there then is available

    2437fccfbfc83bcb868ccc7fdfe2b5310bf07835 – thats rc6 + some commits –
    works, while exactly rc7 does not.

    No bisection tried so far. Maybe tomorrow. It shouldn´t be that many
    attempts and kernel compiles are fast on the ThinkPad T520 with Intel i5
    Sandybridge + integrated graphics – no NVidia – + Intel SSD 320 where this
    happens. No other machines tested so far.

    Kernel configuration available if desired.
