Kernel 3.18.7 for ROSA 2012 2012.1 2014.1 OMV2013 2014 2015

Kernel 3.18.7 for ROSA 2012lts, rosa2012.1, omv2013.0, omv2014.0, rosa2014.1 and cooker (omv2015.0)
Kernel 3.18 arrives ASAP in its complex nrj & nrjQL flavours, for ROSA and OpenMandriva Linux OSes!

This is the 7th version of "nrj / nrjQL" stable 3.18.x, in its full development stage,
all features have been already added and completed, it should be a safe update...

There are many important fixes plus:
- REISER4 FS support
- the long awaited TOI is here, finally is back!

Please, it's important to test properly the suspend/resume & hybernation/resume,
it's mandatory before we can propose officially the new kernels 3.18 with the TOI

Please, it's important to test properly the suspend/resume & hybernation/resume,
it's mandatory before we can propose officially the new kernels 3.18 with the TOI



my tests on an Asus laptop:
$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 3.18.7-nrjQL-realtime-1omv #1 SMP Fri Feb 27 12:06:04 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

results on 3 tries:
suspension / resume > it's OK and is fast
hybernation / resume > it's OK and is fast

TOI, at least for me, is working again as expected,
now im waiting to receive your precious feedback...

I tested on my desktop and doesn't work either suspend to ram or to disk. Suspend to ram caused black screen with underscore in upper left corner, PC normally running, power LED on and didn't react to anything: keyboard, power button, only hard power off helped. Suspend to disk ended with monitor without signal, so OK, but PC again running, power LED on, all fans active. Again only hard power off helped to resume back.

But I tried in the past with older kernel both suspend to ram and disk and more or less it worked as expected, except that after resume I was without internet connectivity. So I had to reboot. That's why I didn't use it more. So from my point of view this latest 3.18.7 kernel performs worse regarding suspend.

With previous kernel, for example nrjQL 3.18.5, where there's Not TOI, the hybernation works?
The freeze on resume affter hybernation starts from new nrjQL 3.18.7 only? If so, maybe TOI
