Thanks for your series!

I've gave this a try on a few machines, incl. r8a73a4/ape6evm and
sh73a0/kzm9g, which have smsc911x Ethernet chips on a power-managed bus.

On both machines it crashes during system suspend, which means the smsc911c's
registers are accessed while the device is suspended:

PM: suspend entry (deep)
PM: Syncing filesystems ... done.
Freezing user space processes ... (elapsed 0.001 seconds) done.
OOM killer disabled.
Freezing remaining freezable tasks ... (elapsed 0.001 seconds) done.
PM: suspend devices took 0.130 seconds
Disabling non-boot CPUs ...
