    Subject[PATCH] Remove suspend() calls from shutdown path
    Hi Andrew !

    This patch remove the calls to device_suspend() from the shutdown path
    that were added sometime during 2.6.13-rc*. They aren't working properly
    on a number of configs (I got reports from both ppc powerbook users and
    x86 users) causing the system to not shutdown anymore.

    I think it isn't the right approach at the moment anyway. We have
    already a shutdown() callback for the drivers that actually care about
    shutdown and the suspend() code isn't yet in a good enough shape to be
    so much generalized. Also, the semantics of suspend and shutdown are
    slightly different on a number of setups and the way this was patched in
    provides little way for drivers to cleanly differenciate. It should have
    been at least a different message.

    For 2.6.13, I think we should revert to 2.6.12 behaviour and have a
    working suspend back.
