SubjectRe: Tracing over a suspend/resume cycle
Hello,

Attached is a tarball with script and log of such a suspend cycle.

The tarball contains:
- config: kernel config
- dmesg.log: kernel log
- mmiotrace.sh script used
(/sbin/tinyinit is a shell script that runs a few things to
mount virtual filesystems like proc, sys, tmp; pupulate /dev;
run sshd; start netconsole; root partition remains RO)
- mmiotrace.log is output of mmiotrace.sh
(note, I inserted the comment regarding "rmmod nvidia" for the
sequence as to when I did it)
- trace.log is what came out of /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace_pipe

Kernel used:
Nearly vanilla (just one patch of mine for pata_hpt37x so it does most
init operations during resume - I will post that patch later on).

Distribution is Gentoo
