Description Hamish Marson 2007-01-24 05:17:08 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did *NOT* occur: Unknown. Have only had SD
working using Vanilla Kernel.
Distribution: Gentoo
Hardware Environment: IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad z61m (9540-HAG)
Software Environment: Gentoo with Vanilla Kernel.
Problem Description: Laptop will suspend & resume normally, unless the tifm_7xxx

Steps to reproduce:
Boot linux. Load tifm_7xxx modules (Inlcuding tifm_core tifm_7xx1 mmc_core
mmc_block tifm_sd). Then attempt to suspend. Unloading all the modules before
suspend also results in same effect.

Hamish, can you confirm that the problem has been fixed?

If so, can you please close this bug?

Tested in 2.6.20.5 and confirmed that I can now suspend & resume with the TIFM drivers loaded...
Comment 4 Hamish Marson 2007-06-30 12:30:52 UTC
Sorry... Above should say

Tested in 2.6.21.5 and confirmed that I can now suspend & resume with the TIFM
drivers loaded... (Not 2.6.20.5)
