   From what I can gather, it seems when a driver induces a transition
to D3, its expected to use pci_save_state() and pci_restore_state().  I
don't think we necessarily need to go to that extent for pciback, but it
does appear to be pciback's responsibility to restore some state on the
card when transitioning out of D3, since it is effectively the driver
for the device.  So, I think the pci_restore_bars() call and the patch I
sent previously are correct.  Thanks,
