thinkpad t41, acpi + ICH4 woes

T40p here.

Based on the rest of the message you seems to have a lot more of a clue about 
this than me, but just in case:

If you are running apmd, try turning it off. I am basing this on a gut feeling 
based on trial-and error, but I believe the hang happens if there is disk 
activity during the suspend process. apmd tends to create such activity. 
Having apmd running with a config where it doesn't do anything was not a 
problem, but when adding some pre/post-processing it would hang. Disabling 
apmd fixes this for me.

I also had to patch the em driver in order for em0 to survive the 
suspend/resume. Dunno if the t41 has the same nic though.
