It's not because of that commit, really. There is a interrupt sent after
resume to the wrong vector for whatever reason. The MSI vector cannot be
masked it seems in the device, but the driver should quiescen the device to
a point where it does not send interrupts.

Reservation mode has absolutely nothing to do with that. What prevents the
issue is the fact that MSI-X can be masked by the IRQ core.

Suspend to idle works completely different and I don't see the BIOS at
fault here. it's more an issue of MSI not being maskable on that device,
which can't be fixed in BIOS or it's some half quiescened state which is
used when suspending and that's a pure driver issue.
