Only ten 24 us difference. But during this resume process the network
came back up fine. Also in my prior pasted output this is also shown at
the beginning but the network worked fine.

This event during resume sometimes shows up and sometimes it does not. I
could not find a correlation between successful and failed resumes.

Here it did not work and the link did not come back up. There is over half a second time bet

I will try this hack next week. Thank you!

Could it be that there is something wrong with the locking though or
parallel execution? Sometimes

        [32598.618289] r8169 0000:02:00.0: eth0: link down

is shown before 

        [32599.249802] r8169 0000:02:00.0: PME# enabled

and sometimes it is not or only afterward.


Thanks,

Paul
