Not working either. Also, with 3.7.0-rc3 + this patch, the computer freezes
when coming back from suspend. I see Gnome-Shell for a couple of seconds, then
some garbage and it stops. Kernel 3.6 works fine on that matter. I'll test with
my split patches to see if it is caused by the same commit.

So, pretty much back to square 1, wherever that is.
