Running Gentoo amd64 with 2.6.31-rc8. KMS and suspend/resume work great.
N-Trig touchscreen/digitizer works using the latest drivers from Dell (2010-02-09 2.254 A3), recent kernel (2.6.34-rc4), Xorg-Server with MPX support (1.8) and the multitouch enabled evdev drivers from http://cgit.freedesktop.org/~tissoire/xf86-input-evdev/log/?h=multitouch-unstable. Older versions might work as well, I just listed mine.

All in all everything works pretty well, because it's almost completely based upon Intel hardware.
