I have very similar behavior on an IBM Thinkpad T23. It's got this IDE

00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation: Unknown device 248a (rev 01)
Subsystem: IBM: Unknown device 0220

And, I also only sometimes get roughly:

ide_dmaproc: chipset supported ide_dma_lostirq func only: 13
hda: lost interrupt
ide_dmaproc: chipset supported ide_dma_timeout func only: 14

Unfortunately, when mine hits this condition, it seems to never recover
from it. It also seems to only happen sometimes and I've been unable to
reliably reproduce the problem. I told Andre about the problem and he
suggested doing a "hdparm -d0 -X08 /dev/hda" prior to suspend and that
seems to work around the problem. I "hdparm -d1 -X69 /dev/hda" on resume
to get it back to speedy udma5 mode. I think the problem is the BIOS doing
things to the IDE chipset during the suspend, and the driver not properly
correcting the changes on resume.
