Actually, if anyone else is experiencing problems shutting down, as there
have been quite a few reports in the last few days (thanks to myself and
the SCSI guys), could you please do the following:

- Apply both the patches mentioned in this email:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=103522568629074&w=2

- Enable debugging in drivers/base/power.c at the top of the file by
applying the patch below.

- Rebuild and try again.

If you're still experiencing a hang or an Oops, please report it to me
and/or the list, along with your .config.

Thanks,

-pat
