I just updated the default kernel configuration file for loongson2f

the previous kernel configuration file not include the "Real Time
Clock", so, no /dev/rtc there, so sorry :-)

* try the following configuration options:
Machine selection --->
[*] Using cs5536's MFGPT as system clock
Power management options --->
[*] Power Management support
[*] Suspend to RAM and standby
[*] Hibernation (aka 'suspend to disk')
(/dev/hda3) Default resume partition
CPU Frequency scaling --->
[*] CPU Frequency scaling
[*] Loongson-2F CPU Frequency driver
* basic user manual(from www.lemote.com):
1. install a shell script
# apt-get install hibernate
2. modify the configuration file /etc/hibernate/common.conf
* find the "UnloadModules" section, modify it like this
UnloadModules r8187 usbhid ohci_hcd ehci_hcd
remove the # before "LoadModules auto"
* modify the "network" section
* modify the "hardware_tweaks" section
remove the # before "FullSpeedCPU yes"
3. prepare a swap partition, by default, it is configured in kernel
change it to yours swap partition in kernel or configure it
via /sys/power/resume, for example:
# fdisk -l | grep swap | cut -d' ' -f1
# ls -l /dev/sda5
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 5 2009-04-10 10:26 /dev/sda5
# echo 8:5 > /sys/power/resume
pass an argument "resume=/dev/hdaX" to kernel, /dev/hdaX is your swap
5. try STD
