    After looking at the spec, it seems that most of the registers we were
    restoring were read-only and couldn't possibly need to be restored.
    Also, the PCI PM spec suggests that only a subset of the registers
    should be restored. Finally, things like BIST should probably never be
    touched.

    This patch is one of the main reasons I'm looking for comments. I
    wanted to see if there are any other necessary registers. I'm also
    thinking we might want to restore some capability structures (which we
    don't do now).

    Thanks,
    Adam
