Last working version: 2.6.29
On my laptop (EEE 4G), the first attempt at hibernation fails.
Subsequent attempts succeed.
If I use s2disk as normal, I see "snapshotting system", then before it
gets to write out the image, it aborts and switches back to X. I can't
see any error message, even if I check the log with "dmesg".
If I use "echo disk > /sys/power/state", echo reports the error "Cannot

Dmesg with PM_DEBUG. Attempted hibernation using my usual s2disk (triggered by gnome-power-manager).

Kernel config for above dmesg
I reproduce(d) this by booting with my wireless device removed (thanks to eeepc-laptop's pecualiar rfkill), and logging in to a sparse KDE session.
This session includes kmix, gnome-power-manager, and knetworkmanager running as system notification icons, but no windows. I hibernate by pressing the the "sleep" button, which causes gnome-power-manager to (indirectly) run s2disk.
If I start up my normal KDE session, which adds konsole, akregator, and konqueror set to "about:", and enable wireless, then I cannot reproduce it.
[The original v2.6.30-rc1 caused ath5k to fail to load. When I tried to reproduce on the latest git, it seemed necessary to disable the wireless. Also, simply running Konsole seemed to avoid the bug].
I found some of these details half way through a bisection run, which is par for the course :-). I'll try again now.

block: change the request allocation/congestion logic to be sync/async based
This makes sure that we never wait on async IO for sync requests, instead
of doing the split on writes vs reads.
