Yeap, when changing from D3 to D0, it is a procedure of resuming from a
sleep state. resuming from 'standby' is such a procedure, but resuming
from a sleep state maybe include the other situations, so, this
judgement is really wrong here.

You are right:

I'm using an external timer(cs5536 mfgpt timer), and because this works
well in linux-2.6.27, so, I never doubted with it in 2.6.30.1, I just
using the MIPS timer instead of it, works well. so, It must be the
problem of the mfgpt timer, it maybe disabled or not enabled before
device_power_up(PMSG_RESUME) in 2.6.30.1, I will check it later.

Thanks very much!
