Tom your machine may need a bios update to fix your suspend issue.  I'm
not sure yet if this is related to the issue we're seeing with other
users who appear to just be rebooting.  It is a very interesting data
point however, so thanks for posting.  If you can post if you're running
i686 or x86_64, and let us know if you have an ethtool -e dump from
after the failure (may need modified e1000e that doesn't goto or set err
= after printing failed NVM checksum)
