It did not work, but it is not really a matter of additional delay
either. Perhaps, when resuming, we are not doing something else. Here is
what I've done:

I printed codec_isr_bits, codec_init_bits and status when probind and
when resuming.

Here is what I've got:

cascardo@...pa:~/code/linux/build/alsa$ dmesg | grep cascardo
[ 1835.512078] cascardo - probe: 300 200 200
[ 1848.511084] cascardo - resume: 300 200 200

Then, I've waited for codec_isr_bits, instead of codec_init_bits when
resuming, and here is what I've got.


[ 2033.909078] cascardo - probe: 300 200 200
[ 2069.692183] cascardo - resume: 300 200 300
cascardo@...pa:~/code/linux/build/alsa$


Considering that status is 0x0200 when probing, which means we spend
those HZ/4 for nothing, and the driver works, there is something the
driver should do when resuming so it could work with status 0x0200.
However, we wait for 0x0300 and we get it in less than one second.

Remember this only happens when there is a cold reset while resuming. If
not cold reseting, here is what I get:

[ 3855.656460] cascardo - probe: 300 300 300
[ 3866.633160] cascardo - resume: 300 300 300

Printing the control register the driver writes in this section of the
code:

        iputdword(chip, ICHREG(GLOB_CNT), cnt);
--

I've got
[ 4261.231603] cascardo - reset: 0x6
[ 4269.748091] cascardo - reset: 0x2

The first while probing (which means we do a warm reset) and the second
while resuming, which does not mean a cold reset, but finishing a cold
reset. All this is with ac97 power save enabled:

cascardo@...pa:~/code/linux/build/alsa$ cat /sys/module/snd_ac97_codec/parameters/power_save
Y
cascardo@...pa:~/code/linux/build/alsa$

This version I've built does not have your patch for power_save to be an
integer with the timeout in seconds. So this works as a timeout of 2
seconds. I've tried the driver with 4 seconds of timeout, without my
patch, and it didn't work either. So I don't think this timeout is
related.

So, my question is: is there any device (perhaps the later ICH) that
needs a cold reset with power_save enabled? Mine didn't and, perhaps, we
should simply remove that ifdef and do the reset as usual, which will
work out for me.

Thanks for the attention,
Thadeu Cascardo.
