    What "running with interrupts" ? :-) Are you talking specifically about
    suspend/resume ? In this case, normal devices also provide irq_off
    variants of suspend/resume.

    In some areas, those semantics are even a problem for sysdevs. For
    example, it's been a pain in the neck for cpufreq on powermac not to be
    able to schedule in its suspend routine. Among others...

    Cheers,
    Ben.
