Are these 2.6.16-1.2111_FC4 w/ or w/o cubbi_swsusp2? W/o cubbi is the
stock package, w/ is the package with swsusp2 patches. Although I
don't think the cubbi patches may be an issue, it is still important
to know what broke, 2111->2115 or stock kernel -> cubbi.
Please check whether installing 2.6.16-1.2115_FC4 and assorted kmdls
fix your issue. If yes, it's sumething in the cubbi patches, if not,
it's something in 2111->2115.
