We've bisected this effect down to commit 152e1d5920 ("PM: Prevent
waiting forever on asynchronous resume after failing suspend").
Suspending our PXA3xx based system breaks with this patch.

I tried to understand what's going wrong, but I didn't follow the
discussion about this logic, so I would rather like to pass it back to
the originating people.

I can only guess that the problem here is the somewhat tricky handling
around mmc_sdio_suspend(), which returns -ENODEV (-38) in case a
particular function of a card can not be suspended. The SDIO core would
have simply removed the card in this case normally, but the PM core
seems to interfere now, stopping the whole suspend procedure.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks,
Daniel
