I've just saw there's a commit by you in the next tree that just removes
the irq requesting and releasing in resume/suspend functions.

This is against v2.6.31-rc9, so I get a warning with a version that's
about to get stable. Sorry I am late in the release cycle.

I've used a status bit because the drivers I took a look at did
release/request irq in suspend/resume. I couldn't find a message about
not doing it was the right thing which I thought I saw in the latest
updates to v2.6.31-rcX. I guess it was something just like your commit
which I did see some weeks ago.

Since this is warning, is this worth backporting to rc?
