It seems that suspend/resume works for me, but it seems to hang from time to 
time, when i do the susp/resume cycle several times in a row.
Also with today's current my machine won't reboot anymore, it hangs too on 
the "Uptime: .." message.
It is a IBM ThinkPad X31, with recent -CURRENT (as of 1-2 hours),
dmesg, loader.conf, uname and asl can be found on :
