git bisect incomplete.

2.6.37-rc1 works fine.
2.6.37-rc2 fails.

i tried to bisect this but i got to a point where the system would hang before suspend. skipping patches got me nowhere.

Bisecting: 39 revisions left to test after this (roughly 5 steps)

im attaching the bisect log just it case it proves useful.

the system is an everex stepnote sa2053t.
it had several issues concerning suspend/resume in the past. but this one is a bit different.

see: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16396
and  https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19422

when this system tries to come back to life. it shows an empty terminal with a stuck cursor. sysrq-REISUB reboots the system.

1. Does the problem also happen in the minimum config, ie. when booted with
   init=/bin/bash ?

2. The only commit I can think may cause this problem to happen from the
   first sight is 48fcfc8 (i915: reprogram power monitoring registers on resume).
   Can you try to revert it and see if that helps, please?

apparently this got fixed in rc4.

thanks
