  Bluetooth & USB interrupt suspended state on Surface Pro 3

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  [Please note: this information was collected using 3.16.0-33 but
  actually is talking about behavior under 4.0.0-RC4 with four specific
  patches described at the end of the note.]

  1. When suspending (i.e. freezing in this situation), it is never
  certain that it will stay suspended. About half the time it simply
  bounces back in the same way that suspending without the freeze patch

  2. If Bluetooth is on or if a Gigaware USB hub is connected to a USB
  port, the freeze never seems to last very long. It doesn't always
  bounce right back but it usually comes back within a few minutes. (I
  have the latest version of mwifiex firmware.) Not all USB devices
  cause this problem; e.g. I have a Microsoft wireless keyboard and
  mouse with a tiny USB transceiver that does not affect suspension.


  The patches are:

  - (not involved) The addition of the two Microsoft cameras in the
  kernel,  drivers/media/usb/uvc/uvc_driver.c.

  - (not involved) The acpi battery-detecting patch described in kernel
  bugzilla bug 90161.

  - Modification of /usr/lib/pm-utils/pm-functions as described in
  Launchpad bug 1380076 to use the "freeze" methodology for suspending.
  Without this modification all attempts at suspending bounce back
  immediately; thus the behavior described in this bug cannot be

  - The "surface_buttons.c" patch described in kernel bugzilla bug
  84651; without this it is nearly impossible to get out of a freeze
  once you've gotten into it.
