Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: ?
Hardware Environment: PowerBook6,8
Software Environment: ?
Makes suspend-to-disk (using hibernate) not work anymore due to khvcd not stopping:
kernel: Stopping tasks: ============================================================
kernel: stopping tasks timed out after 20 seconds (1 tasks remaining):
kernel: Restarting tasks...<6> Strange, khvcd not stopped
Steps to reproduce: Enable CONFIG_HVC_RTAS and try to suspend; Usually, people
probably won't use CONFIG_HVC_RTAS together on a system they suspend, but Debian
has added it to their default powerpc config.
What's a khvcd?
I suppose it's the kernel HVC daemon ... Serial might be the wrong component,
but I didn't know where it fits.
It's defined in drivers/char/hvc_console.c, maybe this helps.
Uh, OK, I cheerfully dinged benh with this - I'll send it along
to Mike Ellerman and Ryan Arnold.

Actually even I might be able to fix this.
Can you please test this patch?
Thanks. But please, use email next time?
Thanks, this patch did the trick!
BTW, Andrew: Was it me you asked to use email next time? This might be a very
stupid question, but which address was I supposed to use?

err, that comment was supposed to be against a different bugzilla report
(someone tried to submit a patch via bugzilla). Blame it on senility.
The patch from this bug was included in 2.6.18.
