i am now using 3.5 kernel with QtMoko. It looks good. I have implemented the
jack detection and it works great. I have also adapted the GPS code - it now
just rfkill blocks/unblock gps.
While i was working on these new features I have noticed one strange thing.
The device took in suspend 21..25mA. After reboot it is back at ~35 mA. So i
wonder what could have triggered the low power in suspend. I cant reproduce it
One more thing - i was trying to find out how much current is the modem
drawing. I have A4 version so i powered the modem off with this  script. I
was expecting that the current will go down, but it's even higher - around
45mA in suspend. I wonder what is wrong...
Btw have you noticed that in 3.4 or 3.5 kernel you can wake the device from
suspend with touchscreen?
