Subject: [patch for 2.6.27? 2/4] forcedeth: fix kexec regression

From: Rafael J. Wysocki <>

Fix regression tracked as
and caused by commit f735a2a1a4f2a0f5cd823ce323e82675990469e2 ("[netdrvr]
forcedeth: setup wake-on-lan before shutting down") that makes network
adapters integrated into the NVidia MCP55 chipsets fail to work in kexeced
kernels.  The problem appears to be that if the adapter is put into D3_hot
during ->shutdown(), it cannot be brought back into D0 after kexec (ref.  Therefore, only
put forcedeth into D3 during ->shutdown() if the system is to be powered
