My apologies, the patch has two flaws.

1) For macbook models without keyboard backlight, the resume function
will fail internally, presumably resulting in a small unnecessary delay.

2) The accelerometer does not reset properly after hibernation.

Please drop this patch from -mm, I am sending a corrected patch
with a slightly different title. Sorry about this.
