It solves a few problems (ipw2200 works; suspend works) but has other
problems (keyboard may go completely crazy if I press a key too early
during resume).

I assume you are interested in the ipw2200 driver.  I use version 1.0.2
that I compiled myself, because the one that comes in Hoary (0.19)
doesn't support WPA.  I once tried upgrading to 1.0.4 but that one
didn't work reliably for some obscure reason -- although my coworker
uses 1.0.4 just fine with the same hardware.
