btw. what should happen if there are drivers which do not support 

I'm using zd1211 wifi usb driver (which isn't state of art) from 
http://zd1211.ath.cx/repos/trunk rev 39 and while trying to suspend on my 
ibook g4 dec 2004 I'm getting this:

After that the only thing I can do is turn the thing off and turn it back on - 
it just hangs. It would be nice if it just refuse to suspend or got things 
back into sane state.

I'm using 2.6.15rc2git3 + both patches posted in this thread.

My usual suspend is:

/sbin/rmmod therm_adt746x
/sbin/rmmod zd1211
/sbin/rmmod usbmouse
/sbin/rmmod usbhid
/sbin/rmmod zd1211
/sbin/rmmod ehci-hcd
/sbin/rmmod ohci-hcd

(I guess that rmmod zd1211 should be enough now).
