With patch #6 in some random situations, my PowerBook G4 (ATI 9600)
doesn't goes to sleep.
One situation is:
- Turn PB
- 14 hours of sleep
- Turn back from sleep (perfect, no problem at all)
- Work for 4 hours (mails, www, no USB, Bluetooth, etc)
- Try to sleep and problem...
When I try to make sleep my PB, nothing happens (in X), and I can't
switch from X to console.
Sorry, I can't help you more with this bug, I will keep trying to
establish which are the events that trigger this bug.

Ok, here's the 6th version of the sleep patch for ATI based albooks &
iBook G4. Other machine users, please test too as it may cause
regressions (or improvements) as well.
This one fixes finally the cache flush problem that made cpufreq (on machines
using the PMU for the switch) and sleep/wake unreliable occasionally (memory
corruption would occur on some CPUs at least). It improves bits here or there
too, and adds the sungem wake-on-lan feature.
There are still pending issues, like cpufreq on some machines will
"think" it's running at full speed on wakeup while it's in fact
at slow speed (thankfully not the opposite). I don't think I'll fix this one
in 2.6.9, but rather in 2.6.10.
I'll post a 2.6.10-rc2-bk* based version of the patch soon.
