I'm the proud owner of a 3rd generation MacBook (the ones that got
released about two weeks ago). For some reason, pressing the power
button won't help on those models, so we really need to patch the kernel

I just merged the patch on AMD64 and I'm currently compiling a new
install CD to test it. I'll let you know whether it works. Thanks a lot!
