recently, a bug was reported against irda-utils for Debian when used in
an IBook G3. please take a look at:
when the machine wakes up after suspend-to-ram, IrDA does not work
anymore. but as soon as /etc/init.d/irda-utils is restarted, it works.
since the init-script does not unload any kernel-drivers, i assume that
the restart of irattach makes it work again. it would be nice if the
restart would be unnecessary.
what makes it a little bit more delicate is, that the kernel driver
involved is none of the IrDA project, but pmac_zilog which is maintained
by someone other (Benjamin Herrenschmidt) as it seems.
does any one of you have an idea if the culprit is irattach or
please do not ask me to do any testing, i cannot. the bug submitter asked
me put the issue forward and the bug report in Debian shows his email
adddress for further discussion with him.
