Subject: RE: [PATCH v3 3/5] net: asix: Fix AX88772x resume failures

Hi Jon,

It seems the AX88772x dongle had been unexpectedly removed while running the
ax88772_suspend() routine. If yes, you might see these error messages
because the hardware had been absent.

After this commit, I have started seeing the following messages during
system suspend on various tegra boards using asix ethernet dongles ...

[  288.667010] PM: Syncing filesystems ... done.

Interestingly, it only seems to happen if the ethernet is in a disconnected
state when entering suspend. I have not had chance to look at this any
further, but wanted to see if you had any thoughts.

Cheers
Jon
