SubjectFW: [linux-pm] select with timeout across S3
The behavior of linux (in both 2.4.x and 2.6.x) is when the processor
sleeps, timeouts on select don't take into account the sleep time,
only the run time.

For example, this program should pause for 10 minutes -- however
if we go into S3 in the middle its pausing for (10 minutes + time in

I saw this on both 2.6.20 and 2.6.22...

That sounds like a bug. Can you write small demo program and post it
to lkml?
