      [PATCH] Remove suspend() calls from shutdown path · c36f19e0
      Benjamin Herrenschmidt authored
      This removes the calls to device_suspend() from the shutdown path that
      were added sometime during 2.6.13-rc*.  They aren't working properly on
      a number of configs (I got reports from both ppc powerbook users and x86
      users) causing the system to not shutdown anymore.
      I think it isn't the right approach at the moment anyway.  We have
      already a shutdown() callback for the drivers that actually care about
      shutdown and the suspend() code isn't yet in a good enough shape to be
      so much generalized.  Also, the semantics of suspend and shutdown are
      slightly different on a number of setups and the way this was patched in
      provides little way for drivers to cleanly differenciate.  It should
      have been at least a different message.
      For 2.6.13, I think we should revert to 2.6.12 behaviour and have a
      working suspend back.
