Public bug reported:

Affects: linux-source-2.6.15 (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Compaq Presario 701EA. Sometimes, but not every time, resume after
hibernation fails, and the laptop just continues rebooting normally
instead. From dmesg (I'll also attach the whole thing for completeness):

[4294678.393000] Attempting manual resume
[4294678.409000] Stopping tasks: =========|
[4294678.409000] Shrinking memory... done (0 pages freed)
[4294678.456000] Loading image metadata ... done (29 pages loaded)
[4294679.475000] busybox: page allocation failure. order:0, mode:0x8020
[4294679.475000]  [<c0144a3e>] __alloc_pages+0x1ee/0x2e0

Other times it resumes, but crashes hard once I touch a key to wake the
screen that otherwise would stay black. This might be a unrelated issue
though - I suspect something with power-manager kicking in to turn off
screen or something because this happens more often when I resume after
a long time hibernation. If I resume shortly after having hibernated, I
rather get the busybox problem.
