The drivers can't handle it at the moment. I've been talking to many people
about this all hitting this sort of driver problem.

I think the fix is to keep two classes of power management objects and do
the following

Call each 'nonirq' suspend function
(aborting if need be)
cli()
Call each irq blocked suspend function
suspend


resume:
call each irq blocked resume function
sti();
call each nonirq resume

That is an easy change set to make and solves a lot of grief
