I'm currently (since yesterday) using 20031220 on 2.4.23 w/ acpi-20031203
and swsusp 2.0rc3. Works like a charm, survives suspend-to-disk cycles and
everything. I'm now waiting to meet someone with another Wireless adapter so
I can test adhoc mode again.

And it seems to me the occasional crashes I experienced on my last try are
now gone. (after several hours or so, the driver sometimes stopped working).

Keep up the good work, Heiko

P.S: Funny enough, swsusp sometimes hangs the console input on resume. I can
     still surf the web from a PC connected to my X30 via LAN using the X30
     as router to the wireless connection... good news concerning airo_mpi!
