I can see how it would help with (2), as that prompty tells the firmware to
issue its default ACPI events for Fn+F4 upon removal. But I have *NO* idea
what thinkpad_acpi might be doing that is causing issues with the wake up
after a resume.

Please open a bug in about it, and attach the full debug
output of a suspend+resume cycle with and without thinkpad-acpi loaded.

Also, please try the same with thinkpad-acpi loaded, but
CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_INPUT_ENABLED set to N. If the problem goes away,
please retest, but set hotkey_enable to 1 and do an "cat
/sys/bus/platform/devices/thinkpad_acpi/hotkey_recommended_mask >
/sys/bus/platform/devices/thinkpad_acpi/hotkey_mask" before the sleep.

You will probably need to enable a bunch of debug options in ACPI and
thinkpad-acpi to get good enough logs. It is probably worth posting the
acpid logs too: the real difference might be there.
