Ok. This is weird. It looks like you marked the merge bad but
it's individual commits as good....

Which would indicate a problem on one of the branches it was merged
with, or a problem that only shows up when both groups of changes
are present.

Of those msi patches you have identified I don't see anything really
obvious. And you actually marked them as good in your bisect so
I don't expect it is core problem.

We do have a known e1000 regression, with msi and suspend/resume.
So it is possible the nomsi avoided a driver problem. Especially
as we have a number of driver changes on the on Linus's side of
that merge.

I also know we have some known issues with pci_save_state and
pci_restore_state that require them to be paired for correct
operation. For suspend and resume that is not generally a problem.

I have fixes for the pci_save_state and pci_restore_state in the -mm
and gregkh tree's. Since they also happen to fix the e1000 driver as
a side effect they are worth looking at, at least if you have an

I don't have a clue which hardware the x60 has so I don't know which
drivers it would be using.
