Re: SATA Suspend Kernel Patch

Is there any chance we're going to see the SATA Suspend kernel patch included in FC5 (BZ 169201)? I don't understand what the holdup is from it getting into Linus's tree (he's asked someone to submit it to him), but every other major distro seems to be using it successfully and it seems like one of the test releases would be a good time to try it if there's concern about it's stability. Just wondering if anyone knew the status.

Thanks

Following up, the thinkwiki suggests that this patch is now in the kernel 2.6.16 development. So now the patch is "blessed." Maybe it can wait for 2.6.16 to be rolled in, but my concern is now with timing. Will kernel updates be rolled in all through FC development, or will there be a stabilizing point at which the kernel needs to freeze (more than just a week or two before release, I mean)?

And more generally, will FC5 be as aggressive with updates (both kernel and otherwise) as FC4, or was that a special circumstance due to the long development window for FC5? Just curious.

Thanks
