Well there are some changes in merge commit e130bc1d00a4..

Well I tried to measure suspend power consumption and noticed
that system suspend fails too hand hangs the network device:

# echo mem > /sys/power/state
[   32.577850] PM: suspend entry (deep)
[   32.582031] PM: Syncing filesystems ... done.
[   32.598083] Freezing user space processes ... (elapsed 0.002 seconds) done.
[   32.608398] OOM killer disabled.
[   32.611846] Freezing remaining freezable tasks ... (elapsed 0.002 seconds) done.
[   32.622192] Suspending console(s) (use no_console_suspend to debug)
[   32.651123] dpm_run_callback(): mdio_bus_suspend+0x0/0x24 returns 4352
[   32.651428] PM: Device 2c000000.ethernet-ffffffff:01 failed to suspend: error 4352
[   32.653289] PM: Some devices failed to suspend, or early wake event detected
[   32.685455] OOM killer enabled.
[   32.688629] Restarting tasks ... done.
[   32.695983] PM: suspend exit
ash: write error: Bad address

That too works just fine at commit 70286688e5ad.
