I need the appended patch to prevent my box from crashing during suspend to
disk (in the resume-during-suspend phase).

Apparently, the pointer returned by to_ide_driver() in generic_ide_resume()
is completely bogous, although it's nonzero, and a NULL pointer dereference
occurs when drv->resume is evaluated (100% of the time on my box).
