What happens to your supply voltages when going to suspend? When I
implemented the code for the smsc driver, I could only test scenarios
where AVDD remains stable during suspend. So the driver might need some
tweaks if that assumption is not true in your case. The SMSC datasheet
is quite comprehensive about this topic IIRC.

Also have a look at the Raumfeld device patches which use exactly this
chip and which can suspend and resume just fine. You'll need to check
out Eric's devel branch for that.
