Subject[patch] xircom_tulip_cb.c
This driver leaves the media timer pending during PM
suspends. If you do a resume within (typically) 60
seconds of suspending, the timer is still pending.

tulip_up() then does an init_timer() on a pending
timer, which corrupts the kernel timer tables. This
causes one of quite a number of nice, sparkly crashes.

This patch kills the timer in tulip_down().
