SubjectRe: [REGRESSION 3.14-rc6] Samsung N150 lid does not "open" after suspend to RAM.

I can see the same acpi_listen events with a working kernel (patch
applied or kernels before rc5), but the lid open is not there with rc6
and rc7 (unpatched).

You can find my _WAK below. It seems not to do anything with LIDS, so I
guess this is the cause for the problem.

Method (_WAK, 1, NotSerialized)
Store (0x00, \_SB.PCI0.PEXE)
If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x03))
Store (0x01, \SPNF)
TRAP (0x46)
TRAP (0x50)
\_SB.SECS (0xB3)
P8XH (0x00, 0x03)

If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x04))
\_SB.OSHT ()
TRAP (0x47)

P8XH (0x00, 0x04)

\_SB.SECS (0xAA)
If (LEqual (OSYS, 0x07CE)) {}
