Hmm interesting.  It's something I definitely want to see fixed - I
consider having to unload yenta_socket on suspend to be a bug.

What happens if you try suspending:
- with yenta_socket loaded but without the cards in the sockets.
- with yenta_socket loaded, cards in the sockets, but execute cardctl eject
  before suspending?

Also, can you send me the output of lspci -vv please?

To which I frowned, and wondered if you were expecting a reply via some
other medium (eg, fax or post). 8)
