Proposed fix

Mainline ath5k doesn't use MSI, but a patch slipped in which enabled it on resume.

    ath5k: don't enable MSI, we cannot handle it yet
    MSI is a nice thing, but we cannot enable it without changing the
    interrupt handler.  If we do it, we break MSI capable hardware,
    specifically AR5006 chipset.

Wrong!  Testing confirms this regression is still present in 2.6.27-rc3.  Please re-read my problem description and proposed fix.

256b152b005e319f985f50f2a910a75ba0def74f only touches the probe/remove routines in base.c.  It missed the suspend/resume callbacks in hw.c which disable/re-enable MSI (which I believe is unnecessary anyway as this is done my the pci core).

Credit should go to Michael Karcher, who independently posted a similar patch on ath5k-devel several days before me.

Ah, sorry.  I'll pick-up that fix in the next round.
