    Well, the idea here was to disable them between the second and third
    pass. Device that can completely suspend with interrupts enabled can
    do it at the end of step 2, while more broken devices can do it at
    step 3. It might be semantically more clear to actually consider step
    2 as exclusively "block io & save state", in which case, breaking up
    the "suspend" state into 2 separate states with and without interrupt
    makes sense. We just didn't fell that was necessary.
