    Subject2.6 agpgart and acpi standby/resume
    when working on supporting the 2.6 kernel's acpi support, I ran into some issues on a Dell Inspiron 4100 notebook (w/ Intel Corp. 82830 830 Chipset Host Bridge) when resuming from standby. the basic problem was that agp configuration was lost in the host bridge's pci config space, causing dma problems with our chip.

    I checked through the agpgart code (specifically the intel-agp.c driver) and saw that the driver did support acpi resume and attempted to reconfigure the chipset when resuming. but the problem is that the driver only does this if the bridge is using the generic or 845 driver. in my case, the 830mp driver was being used. I hacked in support for my driver and everything worked fine.

    I'm curious why support was only added for 2 cases, instead of reconfiguring the chipset in every case. Is this because there were problems with some drivers, or is support added only on an "as-needed" basis?

    (in this case, I happen to be testing with 2.6.0, but I see the same problem in the 2.6.1 code)

    Thanks,
    Terence

    this fixed my problem:
