You don't get it.

Once again:

CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND is used at grml's kernel since ages, nothing new
- no surprises, just what you used so far as well.
And it worked for you in the same configuration until 2.6.20.
2.6.20 causes problems with an external usbdisk on your system.
-> It's a regression inside the kernel.

Deactivating an important kernel option because it causes problems
on one out of several hundreds/thousands boxes is not a real option.
Especially as it's a regression and not because of a new and never
tested driver/feature.

I offered you a ready-to-go kernel package you just have to install
and run it once. If it works we know it was a regression which has
been fixed already. If it still does not work we have to bisect the
problem and inform upstream about it.

If you don't want to contribute but prefer complaining feel free to
do so, but then let me feel free to ignore you.
