Can you pick up this issue after the 43224 crashes?  And followup with Jon
and the linuxdriverproject list to let them know we're looking into it?

In 2.6.37-rc2 I was unable to remove the module and reload it
successfully. In the latest RC I am at least able to reload it and have
it work again after doing so. Could you (for the moment) just add some
kind of big-hammer type reset in the unsuspend code path? :)
