I tested it on Oneiric (armel). It boots and suspends/resumes without 
problems. One possible issue is that the kernel likely fails on hynix ram 
based system as I only fixed this issue on Dec. 9th  and the kernel is form 
Dec. 6th.

The resume problems you see may also be RAM clocking related (the noice on the 
screen). So I better disable the stuff alltogether as it seems to create a lot 
of problems. I will push a fix in a minute ...
