Yes, thanks. I'll try to make it clear the bug it fixes.

secretbug? Alan found resume hang on his 845G machine during his pm test,
and root cause that to extra pci config restore in agp/intel resume function,
which was having a fix to workaround resume order problem for host bridge and
gfx device for pci restore. But now this is handled by early pci resume already,
but the extra restore in resume caused machine hang. So remove them fixed
Alan's hang issue.

Sorry, I might misread on something, "early version merged" seems nonsense.
I'll try to send them again.
