Because of the loss of state bug with Cyclone, and the "missing" acpi_wake
workaround, right?

Of course it is a bug-fix! I'm very bugged by the current behaviour!
Doesn't that count? :-)

Ugh. Is the 2.2 driver more advanced than the 2.4 one? Only temporary, I
hope... :-)

But alas, I cannot easily test this patch, since I need 2.4 for my ATA100
IDE controller, but please send me a patch for 2.4 as soon as you have
one, and I'll help you test it.

Would it be enough to port the acpi_wake function to 2.4? If so, I can do
that myself. In fact, I think I'll try that right away. Who needs
breakfast anyway? :-)
