I didn't used it extensively (just booted and checked dmesg) as I'll
use it as backup.  The only issue I noticed was some message when
restoring the alsa levels. The sound was working anyway.  When I tried
rebooting to get a copy of the exact message, I couldn't reproduce it.
There was nothing in dmesg or the logs.  That was on i686 with
snd_intel8x0 sound card.

No noticeable problems on x86_64

On the repo, I don't care. The iso guys should come forward and say if
there is place on the iso.
