OK, that's better that what I did:  I put it
in /etc/pm/config.d/defaults
(there is no more any manual for pm-suspend.1, just a README which is
not distributed with standard distributions and which doesn't really

With your /etc/pm/config.d/madwifi file, does it mean that the module
will be unloaded only when it is already loaded (that does not matter
