Subject[patch 03/47] b43: Fix possible MMIO access while device is down
2.6.25-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Michael Buesch <mb@bu3sch.de>
This fixes a possible MMIO access while the device is still down
from a suspend cycle. MMIO accesses with the device powered down
may cause crashes on certain devices.
