Ok. I actually knew of this issue, and it should be trivial to fix: we
should save and restore the 256-byte config space over suspends. CardBus
isn't the only controller that would need it.

Can you remind me in a day or two if I haven't gotten back to you? I don't
have any machines that need this, but I've seen ones that do, and if
you're willing to test..

Yes, this is expected for routers that we don't know about: we will still
use the irq that the device claims it has, but we will obviously fail to
try to route it (but it still works if the BIOS had already routed it -
which is how the old code always worked anyway).

Anyway, for the suspend-resume thing, if you want to go ahead on your own
without a real patch from me, the fix is along the lines of

- add a "u32 config_state[64]" array to pci_socket_t

- add two functions:

static void yenta_save_config(pci_socket_t *socket)
struct pci_dev *dev = socket->dev;
int i;

for (i = 0; i < 64; i++)
pci_read_config_dword(dev, i*4, socket->config_state+i);

static void yenta_restore_config(pci_socket_t *socket)
struct pci_dev *dev = socket->dev;
int i;

for (i = 0; i < 64; i++)
pci_write_config_dword(dev, i*4, socket->config_state[i]);

- do a "yenta_save_config()" in "yenta_suspend()" and a
"yenta_restore_config()" at the top of "yenta_resume()"

- test. Also test with the "pci_set_power_state(3)" in suspend enabled,
because it may/should actually work with that enabled too.

Any change in suspend/resume from the above?
