cardmgr just segfaults when in debian -- either the debian cardmgr,
or the bootimage's cardmgr that was working well before I pivot_root'ed
-- weird.
I get an Oops, and it locks up some resource
that prevents from trying to cardmgr again.

I'm far from that, and have little time to set it up.
Can another project member with a smaller CF take that up?

I can't do proper shutdown at all if the machine goes down
at the first (necessary) step of telinit 0.
But I can do proper shutdown if I decide to shutdown now,
and trigger manually a telinit 0 with a fixed kapmd.
Besides, while on the move in Japan, I found that the batteries
could last the whole day long, and it was OK to recharge at night
(didn't have a microdrive then, though).
