SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH] Revert "mwifiex: fix system hang problem after resume"
+ Doug, Matthias, who are seeing problems (or, failure to try to
recover, as predicted below)
+ Amit's new email
+ new maintainers

Perhaps it's my fault for marking this RFC. But I changed the status
back to "New" in Patchwork, in case that helps:

FWIW, I got an Acked-by from Amit when he was still at Marvell. And
another Reviewed-by from Dmitry. This still applies. Should I resend?
(I'll do that if I don't hear a response within a few days.)
