i can reproduce a crash on the second suspend-to-ram, on a T60. I get a
crash here:

#ifdef CONFIG_PM
static void __pci_restore_msi_state(struct pci_dev *dev)
int pos;
u16 control;
struct msi_desc *entry;

if (!dev->msi_enabled)

entry = get_irq_msi(dev->irq);
pos = entry->msi_attrib.pos; <-------- crash on NULL dereference

i.e. 'entry' is NULL after get_irq_msi(). (i can see the crash only on
the VGA screen so no dump of it available. Can write down more info if
it's helpful.)

I have tried Eric's patch above but now i always get a hang after
"system 00:00: resuming", already upon the first suspend-resume. Not
even the NMI watchdog can get the system out of that hang.
