Not entirely sure, though there has been some positive feedback
that 2.6.18 fixes the issues a lot of people saw in 2.6.17.
There still remain some that are not working though :-/

2.6.18 fixed the suspend that wasn't working for me (yonah based Dell
D620 laptop) but the problem with the resume seems to be in the disk
controller or drive. I get errors spewed up the console (which I'm
going to need to write down) regarding the sata disk on the ICH7
southbridge. When I try to dump the dmesg log out to disk it comes
back with it being write protected (or something to that effect -
can't see it eaily with all the errors) if it wasn't for that I think
the resume would work as X comes back (but don't get a full details).
