AFAICT, the lid issue was a complete mess. This patch seems to give back
some hope. One situation that was happening was that the LID
notification was coming before the system was ready to handle (this is
all from memory) and that meant that the state of the system was wrong
(it thought the lid was closed while it was not). Any patch that would
guarantee the ordering between the module related to this issue would be
more than welcome.
