I found another problem --- present in 2.6.23.1, 2.6.25rc3, 2.6.25rc6

--- when I run three threads concurrently reading raw disk partition and
suspend, I get 100% reproducible failure. (with one thread running it
usually succeeds, sometimes fail)

Either the on-going I/O will jam BIOS and I need to remove power to
continue.

Or the machine suspends, wakes up and reports "hda: lost interrupt"
(2.6.23.1 was able to recover from this condition, 2.6.25rc3,6 does not
recover and it is not able to send any more disk IOs).

How is suspending disk IO supposed to work? And why it doesn't?
