Here's a patch to test. I can't try it out on my machine because
2.6.18-rc2-mm1 (even without the patch) crashes partway through a
suspend-to-disk, in a way that's extremely hard to debug. Some sort of
spinlock-related bug occurs within ioapic_write_entry.

can't test because I also can't suspend or hibernate with rc2-mm1
(resume causes hard hang with the backlight and screen off) The issue
i reported was against linus' 2.6.18-rc3 kernel.

patch didn't apply to 2.6.18-rc3.
