For me looks simpler to just call macb_close()/macb_open() in suspend/resume
hooks. Maybe this doesn't fit to your needs... But most of the code you
added in suspend/resume hooks is already present in macb_open()/macb_close(),
except the TX/RX buffers alloc/free.

SAMA5D2 also uses this IP. SAMA5d2 has a power saving mode where core power is cut
off (including this IP). We are using macb_open()/macb_close() + restoring all
few other registers after this (by calling macb_set_rx_mode() and a variant of
macb_set_features() and few other registers). This is not yet mainlined. I was
intending to send soon a version.

Thank you,
Claudiu
