I think the lid switch thing is premature.  Even on my X220 I use a devd
hook to enable it only when i915drm is loaded as resume doesn't work until
that is done.

I think the Cmax thing OTOH is probably more appropriate.  We have several
things place that should "mostly" DTRT for picking the correct timers to
use.  The one case I know of recently were some somewhat older systems where
the HPET wasn't reliable, but the system chose to use HPET instead of LAPIC
becuase the LAPIC was known to stop during C1E, etc.  In this case the user
just stuck with plain old C1 and forced the LAPIC timer which worked fine.
However, it is hard to identify those cases.  On modern systems I would
expect the LAPIC to work just fine, so this problem will become less and
less important as time goes on.
