Tue Sep 3 16:23:08 UTC 2013 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka at redhat.com>

commit eca396d7a5bdcc1fd67b1b12f737c213ac78a6f4 upstream.

If device was put into a sleep and system was restarted or module
reloaded, we have to wake device up before sending other commands.
Otherwise it will fail to start with Microcode error.
