CURRENT has just undergone major changes related to SMP and threading. The
ATA driver has been completely rewritten and is being called ATAng now. This
had a major effect on suspend/resume functionality.
There is no -STABLE for the 5.x series yet, so that means that things will
continue to be UNstable for some time.
Having said that, I run 5.2.1-RELEASE on my IBM Thinkpad A30p. Suspend/Resume
works for me, but I had to remove GLX from my XF86Config file, otherwise the
machine would hang on resume if I was running X11.
However, even my machine will hang after two or three suspend/resume cycles.
This is a regression from 5.1-RELEASE where it used to take about 10 suspend/
resume cycles to lock the machine. Also, ACPI suspend/resume used to work for
me under 5.1-RELEASE, but it's totally broken in 5.2.1-RELEASE. I saw a recent
ACPI commit that might address the problem though.
The USB issue you describe is known. I don't know the specifics, but apparently
