[Gta04-owner] Donations to investigate suspend current?

There was a big jump in gta04 suspend current between 3.7 and 3.11
kernels. This is still an issue in 3.12. I have not yet tried 3.14 or
3.15. As far as I know nobody knows where the extra milliamps are
going. Would it make sense to collect donations specifically to fund
some thermal imaging to see what has changed? There was a call a few
days ago for donations to fund kernel development, but I wonder if more
people would donate to support a more specific goal.
The imaging work wouldn't necessarily need to be done by Goldelico, but
anyone with the knowledge to set up the test and interpret the results.
I see that some home-improvement stores in the US now rent FLIR cameras,
but not any in my state. I'm also not confident that I would be able
to collect reliable results.
