E1000 card info:

02:01.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82540EP Gigabit Ethernet Controller (Mobile) (rev 03)
Subsystem: IBM PRO/1000 MT Mobile Connection
Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 9

Steps to reproduce:

1) Suspend to disk normally
2) Resume from disk, the e1000 will show garbage for network statistics.

Did something change in the driver that forgot to save the registers / not register back upon resumption from disk? I can't tell from the code how the driver knows its been brought down to S3 or S4 states.
A workaround is to then suspend to memory and resume, the e1000 will work again. This is repeatable each time.

Not sure if anyone else noticed this.

[adding netdev to the cc]

unfortunately I didn't.

e1000 has a special e1000_pci_save_state/e1000_pci_restore_state set of routines that save and restore the configuration space. the fact that it works for suspend to memory to me suggests that there is nothing wrong with that.

I'm surprised that the t42 comes with a PCI/PCI-X e1000, which changes the need for this special routine, and the routine does the exact same thing as pci_save_state in your case. These special routines are made to handle PCI-E cards properly.

Also there are no config_pm changes related to this in 2.6.18-rc2. Most of this code has been in the kernel for a few major releases afaik. This code worked fine before, so I don't rule out any suspend-related issues. You should certainly compare with 2.6.18-rc1 and make sure it was a regression, perhaps even bisect the e1000-related changes if you have the time, which is about 22 patches or so.

I'll see if I can find out some more once I get back to work.
