Subject: Should the workaround for needing to reset iPods to turn them on be committed?

Should the workaround for needing to reset iPods to turn them on be committed?

When I had to sometimes reset my iPod (via menu + select) to turn it on,
I found that annoying. I developed a workaround which shuts off PP502x
iPods using the OF. The task is
http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/10107 and the current patch is
PP502x_iPod_shutdown_by_of-alarm_fix.patch at
http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/10107?getfile=20298 . This
workaround has worked for me for many months, and it has also worked for
other people.

To me, rebooting and shutting off via the OF seems like a kludge. I
feel that the proper solution would be entirely within Rockbox.
However, in practical terms it seems good enough, and it's much better
than having to press menu + select to turn on.

So, should PP502x_iPod_shutdown_by_of-alarm_fix.patch be committed?

Regards,

Boris
