No, as I'm afraid I don't have the hardware.

For patch #1 though, I'm not sure that's such an issue, as the
refactoring was really simple, even though the diffstat has ended up
being quite large! I probably should have submitted that one
individually without the RFC tag. Absolutely loads of functions have a
sleepFlag parameter, but I only found one case where this was actually
set to NO_SLEEP. Otherwise, if you follow the call stack it always ends
up being a sleeping case. I verified this by changing functions one at a
time and compile testing. Would you like me to resend this separately? I
feel that this should probably be merged in any case before we discuss
any of the other changes.

If someone who does have the hardware would like to test it though, that'd be
great :-)
