Oh, looks like even this pull request missed the igb fix from Benjamin.
https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/5/197

I don't mean to rush things, but my only concern here is to ensure that
this patch doesn't get lost, because the fix is important, is stable
material (I see warnings/stacktraces during suspend/resume in stable
kernels very frequently and this patch fixes it) and a similar fix for
ixgbe (patch 2/2 in that patchset, https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/4/5/198)
went upstream in a previous -rc (commit 34948a947d), while this one got
left out...

In case the above mentioned patch is already in the pipeline, sorry for
the noise..
