Evergreen_gpu_soft_reset() has been used in my code.
I'm trying to update evergreen_cp_resume() function to latest. But from the comparison between the version 2010.10 and current version 2011.7, I think there is not too much change for this function.
You the code I used before was quite old, so when I port the new S3 code to CE currently, there must be some confliction between the old version and new version. I suspend the problem is there. Let me check more...
