The news is, grml should probably stop advising kernel upgrades to chase
suspend/resume problems.  As Linus says, they are 99% driver bugs. 
Unless the kernel upgrade incorporates new drivers, it won't do much,
and will probably add bugs of its own.

But CONFIG_ACPI is not considered experimental by the kernel devs like

We're more likely to recompile grml 2.6.20 with our own flags, than
upgrade the kernel to 2.6.21.  If we do that I'll let everyone know
whether it worked.
