SubjectRe: FW: [linux-pm] select with timeout across S3
I don't see a behavior change in the current kernels.

Select(2) timeouts only count the time the machine is up -- not sleeping...

I had a patch for 2.6.20 that I tried (it modified schedule_timeout) --
it didn't do anything useful in 2.6.27-rc5.
