After reviewing this bug and bug 223879, I agree that pm-utils needs to
be fixed too (and confirmed that with Steve Langasek on IRC).
Nevertheless, notwithstanding some side-effects on certain pieces of
hardware that are probably not entirely resolvable, I think that the
acpi-support package in hardy-proposed is on balance a significant
improvement. It is true that until pm-utils is fixed, power management
will be reset on suspend/resume; nevertheless this is better than it
being wrong across the board.
I've raised the priority of the pm-utils task on this bug as high as it
will go, assigned it to Steve, and targeted it for 8.04.3. I expect that
it can in fact be dealt with well before that.
