FreeBSD tet4.kurims.kyoto-u.ac.jp 6.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE #1: Fri Dec 2 10:11:23 JST 2005 garrigue at tet4.kurims.kyoto-u.ac.jp:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/T42 i386
The problem occurs on a Thinkpad T42, with Radeon M10 visual, Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network (em), Atheros 5212 wireless (ath).
When going to sleep under X11, using acpiconf -s3, the machine freezes.
The problem can be mitigated by setting hw.syscons.sc_no_suspend_vtswitch to 1, but I still observe freezes when going to sleep while accessing the disk.
The problem disappears completely when removing em from the kernel (no need for sc_no_suspend_vtswitch.)
It reappears when loading it as a kernel module.
There is no such problem using the generic kernel from 6.0-RC1 (which includes em)
The problem is still there in STABLE as of 2005-12-01.
On a Thinkpad T42, go to sleep under X11 without setting sc_no_suspend_vtswitch.
This might occur on other laptops using the em driver.
workaround: remove em from the kernel.
