SubjectRe: 2.6.15-rc5-mm1 (x86_64-hpet-overflow.patch breaks resume from disk)
>Is the appended patch better than the previous one?

It looks better, but still not ideal. While I hinted towards using a
flag, I didn't necessarily mean this in the exact sense (I just didn't
look at how exactly the resume code is structured, nor did I exactly
remember how the init code sets up things). Now having looked at the
code, it'd seem to me that resume should just duplicate part of what
init() does: initialize vxtime.last and/or vxtime.last_tsc. But for
making things accurate, the value stored in vxtime.last_tsc may need
adjustment (so that it matches the value that would have been stored one
timer tick before the first timer tick after resume).

I'm sorry for not immediately coming up with an appropriate patch
myself, but I'm currently hunting down a problem more severe than broken
resume (and Andi indicated he wants some polishing done on the original
patch anyway).
