Judging from the blinking LED, I assume that it's not
pci_set_power_state() that hangs the machine, but the hang happens in
BIOS code.

Letting the pci core put the device into D3 wouldn't get rid of the problem.
It's putting the device into D3 in the first place what causes it.

We have a good understanding about the issue: the BIOS on your platform
does something unexpected behind the back of the driver/kernel. In that
sense the patches were not random, for instance the first one is based on
an existing workaround for an issue that resembles quite a lot yours, see

The current way is the proper one that we want for the generic case. The issue
on your platform is the exception, so working around that is a sensible choice.

Attached is the proposed fix for this issue.

Bjørn reported that his machine hang during hibernation and eventually
bisected the problem to the following commit:

commit da2bc1b9db3351addd293e5b82757efe1f77ed1d

    drm/i915: add poweroff_late handler

The problem seems to be that after the kernel puts the device into D3
the BIOS still tries to access it, or otherwise assumes that it's in D0.
This is clearly bogus, since ACPI mandates that devices are put into D3
by the OSPM if they are not wake-up sources. In the future we want to
unify more of the driver's runtime and system suspend paths, for example
by skipping all the system suspend/hibernation hooks if the device is
runtime suspended already. Accordingly for all other platforms the goal
is still to properly power down the device during hibernation.
