It's the core "struct device" shrinkage patch:

ChangeSet@xxxxxxxxxx, 2004-11-12 11:41:25-08:00, david-b@xxxxxxxxxxx
[PATCH] driver core: shrink struct device a bit

This patch removes two fields from "struct device" that are duplicated
in "struct dev_pm_info": power_state (which should probably vanish)
and "saved_state". There were only two "real" uses of saved_state;
both are now switched over to use dev_pm_info.
