Subject: 3c59x.c patch to 2.6.18 fixing Wake on Lan (WOL)

Hello all.

The 3c59x.c in kernel 2.6.18 (and as I see later ones too) attempts
to enable PME from the already awake D0 state. The PME config space on Dell 
for this chip has a zero in the capabilities for this bit-- no 'wake from d0'.

The pci_enable_wake in 2.6.18 tests the capabilities before enabling PME,
so the pci_wake call fails, its result is not tested, so no error is reported.

The routine changes the wake request from 0 to D3_hot.  This fix
causes wake on lan (WOL) to work properly on older Dell Optiplex models.

Kindly overlook newbie mistakes.  Thank you.
