I don't know, and can't hear, but doubt it (I can't see why
it'd need disk spun up just to do an ata_dev_set_xfermode).

No, after that wait for 30 seconds, it degenerates into attempting I/O,
getting errors, remounting the root readonly, can't get much further.

Well, moving the ata_set_mode after the ata_start_drive does help:
then the ata_start_drive times out and fails, but that does not seem
to matter at all, and the ata_set_mode then succeeds and all is well.
I guess that amounts to what you meant; but all the same, I won't be
alone in preferring to wait 2 seconds than 30 seconds!

But you've made me try a bit harder, and the patch below, waiting for
ATA_BUSY to clear, copying a line used in several other places there,
fixes it in a much more satisfactory way than mdelay(2000). (I checked
how long it in fact was waiting, saw various waits between 0.8s and 1.3s).

This is a patch I'd not be ashamed to send Jeff Garzik cc linux-ide,
even if we can't name precisely why it's ATA_BUSY then. But I'll
give it a day or so of real-life suspend/resuming first - Arkadiusz
and I both noticed we're more likely to resume successfully after
a brief suspend, so longer suspends are needed for proper testing.
