Precisely what other tasks are active for this hardware, during resume?
There's no guarantee that suspend() and resume() methods
are only called during system-wide suspend and resume.
That is precisely the reason why I am concerned. If it was only during
system-wide resume, the impact of the very-long mdelay() would be more
difficult to notice.
You also ignored my question :)
If the PCI layer is calling the resume method for a PCI device while
simultaneously calling the suspend method, that's a PCI layer problem.
Similarly, If the USB layer is calling into your driver while you are
resuming, something is broken and it ain't your locking.
