I apologize: I had quirks on the brain, but neither of the patches
above is device-specific. So neither is claiming broken hardware.

However, 9557113 claims we get unwanted PME interrupts if the slot is
occupied when we suspend to D3hot. This is what I want to explore
further, because that hardware behavior doesn't really make sense to

9562007 apparently fixes something, but at this point it's a debugging
patch (no changelog or signed-off-by) so not a candidate for tossing
into v4.10 at this late date.
