touchpad won't work after suspend to ram (s3)

Description of problem:
After my laptop hp nx6310 is woken up from suspend to ram the touchpad won't work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. put laptop to sleep (echo mem >/sys/power/state or by menu in gnome-power-properites applet)
2. wake it up
touchpad does not work. can't move cursor nor click. keyboard works. after reboot everything is ok.
touchpad should work.
i though it may be relevant to so called "bad state" in hp notebooks so i recompiled standard i686 kernel (2.6.18-1.2849, from src.rpm) with psmouse switched to build as module (that was the only change). then, after laptop was woken up, i tried to reload psmouse (modprobe -r psmouse; modprobe psmouse) and touchpad started to work but all special features such as tap for click, double tap for drag, vertical scroll, etc, were gone. so i was only able to move cursor with touchpad and use buttons, but it's not so comfortable as using taps, scrolls, etc.
Could you please try adding i8042.reset=1 to the kernel command line?
Reassigning to me as it looks more like a kernel driver issue.
*** Bug 187098 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Somebody suggested in bug 187098 that this might have upstream in
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7977. I am not that much involved in
kernel stuff, but he is IMHO right.
I'm suffering with almost this same issue in the F9 Beta/Rawhide on my Asus F3SR
with Synaptics touchpad. Though I didn't notice it until I changed some
synaptics driver options away from the defaults.
What happens for me is that when I resume from S3 suspend, all the synaptics
options I've changed in xorg.conf seem to be ignored.
Output from "synclient -l" indicates that my settings were read correctly from
xorg.conf, but behaviour has reverted back to the default. Setting options with
synclient no longer works after resuming. Restarting X with a Ctrl-Alt-Bkspc
fixes the problem.
My xorg.conf contains:
... etc ...
InputDevice "TouchPad" "CorePointer"
Option "Protocol" "auto-dev"
Option "TapButton1" "1"
Option "RTCornerButton" "2"
Option "RBCornerButton" "3"
Option "SHMConfig" "on"
See attached Xorg.log
I tried adding "i8042.reset=1" to the kernel command line as suggested in
comment 1. The problem still persists, only now I get a "An internal system
error has occurred" popup when I resume from the suspended state. :-)
